Presenting ROSA

The EU’s worldwide network of trade agreements cuts customs duties or removes them altogether.

To benefit from lower or zero duties, your product needs to comply with the rules of origin.

ROSA– the Rules of Origin Self-Assessment tool in Access2Markets – offers guidance in simple steps to determine the rules of origin for your products.

In January 2022 a beta version of the new Rules of Origin Self-Assessment tool (ROSA 2) was launched. It is now more user-friendly than ever to assess if your product can qualify for reduced tariffs under the EU’s Trade Agreements. Try it out today and please tell us what you think, your feedback will help us to make it even better. More info here.

The interactive guide covers your exports to or imports from*
