This order, which comes into force on 19 September 2021, declares Peru to be a specified party to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (the CPTPP) for the purposes of the Tariff Act 1988. The CPTPP is a free trade agreement, done at Santiago, Chile, on 8 March 2018.

For the purpose of giving effect to the CPTPP, that regulation prescribes rules of origin, including product-specific rules and other applicable requirements, for goods imported to New Zealand from parties to the CPTPP.
