Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 January 2012, amend the Customs and Excise Regulations 1996 to make changes, and to authorise the making of changes, to the prescribed rules of origin for a number of countries. These changes are required to ensure consistency with the International Convention on the Harmonised Commodity Description and Coding System. In the case of Australia, Malaysia, and Hong Kong, China the changes will be set out in lists made by the chief executive of the New Zealand Customs Service. These lists will, as from the commencement of these regulations, be available on the Internet site of the New Zealand Customs Service.
