EU-Colombia-Peru-Ecuador Trade Agreement

The EU-Colombia-Ecuador-Peru Trade Agreement includes full or partial tariff liberalisations, substantive duty free quotas, the removal of regulatory or technical non-tariff barriers and the introduction of trade facilitating-measures, such as customs procedures. The Trade Agreement also liberalises capital movements, investments and public procurement markets. Not the least, the Agreement commits the parties to respecting human rights, guaranteeing employment rights and ensuring an adequate level of environmental protection.

The agreement at a glance

The EU’s comprehensive trade agreement with Colombia and Peru has been provisionally applied with Peru since 1 March 2013 and with Colombia since 1 August 2013.

On 1 January 2017, Ecuador also joined the agreement.

Full text and annexes of the agreement with Colombia, Peru and Ecuador.

A list of the all the amendments and annexes of the agreement are available on the DG TRADE website.

As a result, the EU now has a preferential trade agreement with three countries of the Andean community (Bolivia being the exception). At present, Bolivia benefits from the EU’s generalised scheme of preferences (GSP) including through the special incentive arrangement for sustainable development and governance known as GSP+. Bolivia could also ask to negotiate to join the trade agreement should it so wish.

What are the benefits for your business?

The trade agreement between the EU of the one part, and Colombia, Peru and Ecuador, of the other part, opened up markets on both sides and provides

  • a more stable and predictable business environment
  • better conditions for trade through new rules on non-tariff barriers, competition, transparency and intellectual property rights
  • lowered or zero custom duties for almost all goods
  • improved access to government procurement and investment markets

Current payments and capital movements are also liberalised. This facilitates the free movement of services, investments and establishments.

 

Trade relations between the EU and Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru

The highest EU exports to the three Andean countries are manufactured goods, especially machinery and transport equipment, as well as chemical products.

In turn, the highest imports from Colombia, Peru and Ecuador into the EU consist of agricultural products, fuels and mining products.

Tariffs

The EU-Colombia-Peru-Ecuador Trade Agreement provides improved market access by reducing or eliminating tariffs on important goods for bilateral trade.

EU

Over a transitional period, the EU eliminates tariffs on almost all exports coming from Colombia, Peru and Ecuador, except for certain vegetables and fruits.

For specific sensitive products, tariff rate quotas are in place. This means that each year only a limited amount of sensitive products can be traded free of duties. The products subject to tariff rate quotas (TRQs) are

  • mushrooms
  • sweet corn
  • sweets
  • bovine animals
  • cow milk
  • rum
  • sugar
  • yoghurt
  • bananas

These quotas are managed on the basis of a first-come-first-served principle. The application period is from 1 January to 31 December. If any imports that arrive in the EU exceed these TRQs, an MFN customs duty will apply.

Colombia, Ecuador, Peru

Colombia, Peru and Ecuador also grant the European Union tariff benefits. Recognizing the asymmetry in the parties´ development levels, the liberalization is gradual, spreading over a period of up to 17 years. Once all the tariff reductions will be implemented

  • all EU industrial and fishery products will be exported duty free to Peru, Colombia and Ecuador, under certain conditions
  • most EU agricultural products will also be exported duty free. However, a list of sensitive products are excluded from liberalisation, while others are subject to tariff rate quotas

Rules of origin

This section introduces the main rules of origin and the origin procedures of the trade agreement.

Origin is the 'economic nationality' of traded goods. If you are new to the topic, find an introduction to the main concepts in the goods section.

Rules of origin

Your product needs to comply with certain rules that prove its origin in order to qualify for the preferential rate.

Where can I find the rules of origin?

The rules of origin are set out in Annex II concerning the definition of the concept of ‘originating products’ and methods of administrative cooperation. The link refers to a consolidated version taking into account the accession of Ecuador in 2016 (OJ L 356, 24.12.2016, p.1093).

Is my product 'originating' according to the trade agreement?

For your product to qualify for the lower or zero preferential tariff under the EU-Colombia, Ecuador, Peru Trade Agreement it must originate in the EU or a signatory Andean country. A product is considered to be originating if it is

 

Examples of the main types of product-specific rules in EU trade agreements

 

You can find the specific rules for your product in My Trade Assistant.

Tips and tricks to help comply with the product-specific rules

Additional flexibility is foreseen to help you comply with product-specific rules, such as tolerances or cumulation.

Tolerance

Cumulation

The EU-Colombia, Ecuador, Peru Trade Agreement provides for several ways of cumulating origin

 

How does diagonal cumulation work?

Diagonal cumulation occurs among several different countries that share the same rules of origin and have trade agreements with each other. This is when a producer of goods in either country can import materials and use them as though they originated in their own country. For example, under the PEM Convention, a Moldovan trader who is making up clothes for export to the EU can use fabrics originating in Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine (and/or any other party of the PEM Covention) to produce the clothes. The double transformation requirement (i.e. manufactured from yarn) has been fulfilled and are considered as originating from Moldova when exported to the EU and will therefore benefit from free access in the EU market.

Other requirements

The product also needs to fulfil all other applicable requirements specified in the Protocol, such as the direct transport rule.

Direct transport rule

Originating products must be transported from the EU to a signatory Andean country (and vice-versa) without being further processed in a third country.

Trans-shipment or temporary warehousing in a third country is allowed if the products remain under the surveillance of the customs authorities and do not undergo operations other than

  • unloading
  • reloading
  • any operation designed to preserve them in good condition

Originating products may be transported by pipeline across a territory other than that of the EU or the signatory Andean countries.

Evidence that these conditions have been fulfilled shall be supplied to the customs authorities of the importing country.

Duty drawback

Refunding of duties previously paid on non-originating materials used to produce a product that is exported under a preferential tariff is allowed under the EU-Colombia, Ecuador, Peru Trade Agreement.

Origin procedures

Section 4 on Proof of origin and Section 5 on Arrangements for administrative cooperation set out the origin procedures related to claiming a preferential tariff and verification by customs authorities.

How to claim a preferential tariff

To benefit from a preferential tariff, importers must provide proof of origin which can be either

No proof of origin is required when the total value of the products does not exceed

  • €500 for small packages
  • €1,200 for personal luggage

Movement certificate EUR.1

  • Appendix 3 includes a specimen EUR.1 certificate and instructions on how to complete it
  • EUR.1 movement certificates are issued by the customs authorities of the exporting country
  • the exporter applying for the certificate should be prepared to submit documents proving the originating status of the products concerned

Origin declaration

Exporters can self-declare that their product originates in the EU or, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador by providing an origin declaration. The origin declaration can be made out by

Approved exporters

Exporters under this agreement can seek authorisation from their customs authorities to make out origin declarations for products of any value.

Customs authorities may withdraw approved exporter status in the event of abuse.

How to make an origin declaration
  • the exporter should type, stamp or print the following declaration on the invoice, delivery note or other commercial document identifying the product (Appendix 4)
    • “The exporter of the products covered by this document (customs [or competent governmental] authorisation No ...) declares that, except where otherwise clearly indicated, these products are of ... preferential origin.”
  • the text of the origin declaration can be made out in any of the official languages of the EU
  • you must sign your origin declaration by hand. If you are an approved exporter, you are exempted from this requirement, provided that you give your customs authorities a written undertaking that you accept full responsibility for any declaration identifying you
  • when filling in an origin declaration, you should be prepared to submit documents proving the originating status of your products
  • an origin declaration may be made out by the exporter when the products to which it relates are exported, or after exportation on the condition that it is presented to the importing country no longer than two years after the importation of the products to which it relates

 Verification of origin

The customs authorities may verify whether a product imported is indeed originating or fulfils other origin requirements. Verification is based on

  • administrative cooperation between customs authorities of the importing and the exporting parties
  • checks done by local customs (visits of the importing party to the exporter are not allowed)

Once the verification has been concluded, the authorities of the exporting country make the final determination of origin and inform the authorities of the importing country of the results.

Product requirements 

Technical rules and requirements

Technical rules define specific characteristics that a product should have in relation to its design, labelling, marking, packaging, functionality and performance, which are designed to protect human health and safety, as well as environmental standards. However, it can be costly for traders to comply with different requirements in different markets.

Under the trade agreement, the EU and the three Andean countries cooperate on market surveillance, technical regulations, standards and conformity assessment procedures. The sides are committed to transparency, making all technical regulations publicly available. This cooperation facilitates trade in general and notably in products such as pharmaceuticals, medical devices, optical instruments, automotive and other types of machinery.

The partners oversee conformity assessment results issued by the competent authorities, as well as the conclusion of recognition agreements with certification bodies. This contributes to the harmonisation of conformity assessment procedures between the two regions.

Labelling

The agreement provides for innovative disciplines in labelling and marking that limit the amount of information required on a permanent label. This prevents burdensome and unnecessary labels that are not of strict relevance to consumers.

  • prior approval to register labels is no longer required, unless the labels are necessary to protect human, animal or plant health
  • international pictograms and nomenclature for product labels are allowed
  • in textiles and footwear, the information that producers have to provide on permanent labels is limited which means that non-permanent labels are only used to display additional information, if necessary

Health and safety requirements (SPS)

The EU-Colombia-Peru-Ecuador Trade Agreement provides a balance between the trade facilitating harmonisation of SPS rules and the protection of existing national sanitary rules, thus ensuring that standards are not compromised.

The agreement provides for the harmonisation of SPS measures, including specific rules and procedures for national institutions’ inspections, verification of information, transparency and information exchange.

The agreement also provides for a Sub-Committee on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures to solve any problems that might arise in this area, as well as to track and monitor SPS actions carried out by all parties to this agreement. For example, considerable progress has been made by the subcommittee with regards to obtaining real access for agriculture and food processing products from the EU to the Colombian market.

Technical Barriers to Trade

Although technical rules are important, they can at times act as barriers to international trade and can thus be a considerable burden for you as an exporter.

 

  • if you think you are facing a trade barrier that slows your business down or prevents you from exporting, you can tell us
  • report what is stopping your exports to Colombia, Ecuador, or Peru using the online form, then the EU will analyse your situation and take appropriate action

Report a trade barrier

Customs clearance documents and procedures

The agreement ensures more transparent and simplified customs procedures to facilitate trade and reduce costs for businesses.

The step-by-step guides describe the different types of documents you should prepare for customs clearance of your products.

Depending on your product, the customs authorities may require all or some of the elements below

  • commercial invoice (find the specific requirements regarding its form and content in My Trade Assistant)
  • packing list
  • import licences for certain goods
  • certificates showing your product complies with mandatory product regulations, such as health and safety requirements, labelling and packaging
  • proof of origin - origin declaration

For more certainty, you may wish to apply for Binding Tariff Information and/or Binding Origin Information in advance.

For detailed information about which documents you need to present for customs clearance for your product, go to My Trade Assistant.

Procedures for proving and verification of origin

For descriptions of how to prove the origin of your products to claim preferential tariffs and of rules relating to verification of origin by customs authorities, please refer to the section on rules of origin above.

For information on customs procedures for import and export in general, visit the website of DG Taxation and Customs Union.

Intellectual property and Geographical Indications

The trade agreement provides stronger intellectual property rights protection for your imports/exports to and from Colombia, Ecuador or Peru.

Title VII of the EU-Colombia-Peru-Ecuador Trade Agreement reaffirms the parties’ commitments to the TRIPS agreement and the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) and accords them both national treatment and most favoured nation (MFN) treatment. This means that your intellectual property in Colombia, Ecuador or Peru will be treated in the same manner as that of the nationals of those countries.

Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru also amended and adopted new legislation to incorporate regional specialities and Geographical Indications (GIs) in a manner similar to the EU.

Trade in services

The trade agreement opens the services markets in both regions to each other and provides the legal certainty and predictability that you need as a service supplier. It goes beyond the commitments made under the WTO General Agreement on Trade in Services, consolidating access to important sectors such as telecommunications, financial and business services, environmental services, distribution services and non-services sectors, while reserving the parties’ right to change aspects of particular importance (e.g. restrictions on the minimum percentage of the labour force that must be local, the computer services used in cross-border activity and auxiliary services used in air transport).

The trade agreement also ensures that you will not be discriminated against as a service provider in the sectors open to you.

See Title IV Trade In Services, Establishment And Electronic Commerce.

Cross-border supply and establishment of services

The agreement enables almost full market access for cross-border services and for establishment in a broad array of several areas, including financial services, professional services, maritime transport and telecommunication services.

Several limitations apply for the cross-border supply of banking and rail transport services, such as those related the protection of minorities.

See Annex VIII (List of Commitments on Cross-Border Supply of Services)

Non-discriminatory limitations also apply for establishment in distribution and environment sectors.

Annexes VII (List of Commitments on Establishment)

Movement of persons

EU short-term business visitors can temporarily stay in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru and vice versa. This includes service providers who have been contracted to provide a service in the European Union to a final consumer (architecture, engineering, medical services, research and design, market research, trade fairs, tourism).

See Annex IX (Reservations Regarding Temporary Presence of Natural Persons for Business Purposes).

Public Procurement

The EU-Colombia–Ecuador-Peru Trade Agreement allows for EU companies to bid and compete for government tenders in the partner countries under equal conditions with domestic companies.

Annex XII of the Agreement states the rules applicable to public procurement. It describes which entities are covered by the agreement, as well as the goods and services that may be subject to public contracting. It also lists excluded areas, such as land acquisition or lease, tax or deposit agencies, and public employment services.

Finally, the Agreement provides general principles of public procurement, including tendering procedures, the use of electronic media, rules of origin, and compensation.
