This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 December 2013, amend the Customs and Excise Regulations 1996 (the principal regulations) to prescribe rules of origin and product specific rules for goods imported from the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, and Matsu (Chinese Taipei). The rules of origin and product specific rules give effect to the Agreement between New Zealand and the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, and Matsu on Economic Cooperation done at Wellington on 10 July 2013 (ANZTEC).
The rules of origin and the product specific rules in ANZTEC are incorporated into the principal regulations by reference. At the time of the making of these regulations, the text of ANZTEC is available at http://www.nzcio.com/node/247
Access to the provisions incorporated by reference is also facilitated by the chief executive of the New Zealand Customs Service in the other ways required by section 287D of the Customs and Excise Act 1996.
Date of notification in Gazette: 14 November 2013.
