What is a U.S. - Australia Certificate of Origin?


On Jan. 1, 2005, the U.S.– Australia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) entered into force. More than 99% of U.S.-manufactured goods exported to Australia immediately became duty free. Manufactured goods account for 93% of U.S. exports to Australia.

For the U.S. – Australia Free Trade Agreement, the importer, not the exporter, is required to make a claim of preferential tariff treatment under the FTA on the basis that the goods originate in the U.S. However, the importer or Australian customs authority may ask you to provide information to support a claim of preferential treatment.

Key Data Elements

An Australia Certificate of Origin should include:

  • The name and contact information for the exporter, importer and producer of the goods;
  • A description of the goods, including the six-digit Harmonized System or Schedule B code;
  • The preference criteria used to qualify goods under the FTA;
  • If you are the producer of the goods;
  • If you used the Net Cost accounting method to determine the origin of the goods;
  • The country of origin of the goods; and
  • The signature and contact information of the person certifying that the goods qualify under the Australia FTA.
