Details on Hong Kong Origin Rules

Hong Kong origin rules are classified into two categories, namely non-preferential origin rules and preferential origin rules.

Non-preferential Origin Rules

Non-preferential origin rules are used to establish the origin of Hong Kong exports in order to meet the requirements of overseas importing authorities.

Preferential Origin Rules

Preferential origin rules are established under the Free Trade Agreements signed by Hong Kong and certain trading partners. Hong Kong-origin exports to these places can enjoy tariff preferences only if they meet the specified origin rules.
