EPA Helpdesk Webinar 45: Rules of Origin

25-01-22 | 10:30 h - 11:30 h

What to know before starting trade exchanges with Japan?

Even if you already export to some FTA-countries, you will need specific information if you intend to have trade with Japan as the EU-Japan EPA is very different from the other trade agreements concluded by the EU. This presentation will present you what to start with, and will put the focus on the main differences with former agreements. The aim is to explain how to work in practice and also to provide some useful links with trustworthy information.
