(ii) If the total value of the materials, part or produce originating from outside of the territory of a Party (i.e. non-ACFTA) does not exceed 60% of the FOB value of the product so produced or obtained provided that the final process of the manufacture is performed within the territory of the Party.

(b) For the purposes of this Annex, the originating criteria set out in Rule 4(a)(ii) shall be referred to as the “ACFTA content”. The formula for the 40% ACFTA content is calculated as follows:

Rule 6: Product Specific Criteria

Products which have undergone sufficient transformation in a Party shall be treated as originating goods of that Party. Products which satisfy the Product Specific Rules provided for in Attachment B shall be considered as goods to which sufficient transformation has been carried out in a Party.
