Rules of origin Ukraine (ATMs)
The European Union uses different types of autonomous trade regimes to grant preferences to different categories of countries:
- Autonomous Trade Measures (ATMs) – offered to the Western Balkans and to Ukraine
- the Generalized Scheme of Preferences
- the Association of the Overseas Countries and Territories with the EU
These preferences are granted by the EU on a temporary basis, taking into account the specific situation of the different countries covered.
It may happen that a country benefits from two types of autonomous preferences (for example being a GSP country and an OCT) or from reduced or removed customs duties agreed in a Free Trade Agreement and from an autonomous preference in the same time.
In this case, the exporter may choose the regime which grants them the best duty discount or rules of origin.
