Glossary term:

Diagonal cumulation

Provision under agreements between more than two countries,  that allows members to use products originating in the others without the final good losing its originating status.

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