A. General Information
Electronic exchange of Certificate of Origin between New Zealand and China
B. Lessons Learned
In December 2016, NZ Customs and the General Administration of China Customs launched the Joint Electronic Verification System (JEVS). The system sends Certificate of Origin (CoO) information to China customs, which is compared to the Chinese Import Declaration. If all details match, the shipments are cleared with ease and the traders utilize an efficient trade process between both countries.
Under the new JEV system, exporters would need to enter a unique certificate of origin reference number on their electronic export documents, which would then be matched to the electronic data shared between the two agencies.
The need to improve work processes, further facilitating trade, saving clearance time and efforts, ensure reliable exchange of information.
Certificates will only be certified listing goods with a current approved goods registration
Signatories will need to be registered in eCertify for the Certificate applications to transmit to the certifying Chamber.
In addition to the PDF Certificate of Origin, which will be emailed to the applicant once certified, NZ Customs automatically receives a file of the data contained on the Certificate of Origin. Data for NZ China Certificates of Origin also transmits automatically in real time to China Customs.
Certificate of Origin applications are processed within one working day.
Electronic system receives and transmits data elements on CoOs when issued by authorized body in New Zealand.
An automated data matching system between data from the CoOs and that from corresponding export entry to provide enhanced validation to both importing and exporting party Customs.
