Glossary term:

Bilateral cumulation

Provision under agreements between two countries/entities that allows each member of the agreement to use products originating in the other without the final good losing its originating status.

Goods produced from originating materials in one FTA country and further processed in the other, can then be exported back to the first country under preferential treatment. Without cumulation only the inputs originating in the exporting country could be counted towards the originating status.
