UK rules to determine country of origin – Post Brexit

QuestionBefore Brexit, UK adopted the ‘EU Table of list rules applicable to products’ to determine the country of origin and I wonder if these rules are still valid in UK, I’m not able to find out anything within the GOV.UK website at this regard. I just found a document about ‘Special Rules for Determining Non-Preferential Origin, Version 1.0 dated 7 December 2020’ but it refers to few rules for specific headings only.

For example, the EU primary rules for heading 9001 state ‘CTH or 45% value added’ rules and the UK Special Rules mentioned above includes only rules for the single heading 9029 and nothing for all the other headings of chapter 90.


Please see guidance here on claiming preferential rates of duty between the UK and EU.

Rules for non preferential origin may be found on GOV.UK:
