Peruvian customs officers designate a person representing the Peruvian customs administration. Similarly, the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) has noted the removal of tariffs on all product categories that include mining equipment. [43] The MCA also took note of Austrade`s figures and identified the considerable potential for Australian investment and services in the Peruvian mining sector: for the most part, you are free to copy and communicate this work in its current form for all non-commercial purposes, as long as you assign the work to its author and comply with other licensing conditions.

[2] The Tariffs Act establishes the International Convention on the Harmonized System of Description and Codification of Goods [1988] ATS 30 (which comes into force for Australia and generally on January 1, 1988) (SH) and provides for general and concessional tariffs. The HS is the international classification system for goods that allows participating countries to classify goods traded on a common basis for customs purposes. A concession is the granting of a right, in which case a right to a certain tariff for certain goods on the basis of the conditions of the PAFTA. As a general rule, a tariff concession removes tariffs on certain products that an importer would pay under the tariff. A customs concession helps to reduce the cost of imported goods.

All preferential and free trade agreements (FTAs) contain rules of origin. Despite the differences between the rules of origin between the various free trade agreements, the general objective of these rules is to determine whether a product is eligible for tariff preferences granted under a given free trade agreement. The main objective of the rules of origin is to ensure that the economic benefits of trade preferences are granted only to countries that are parties to the free trade agreement concerned. To do this, the rules of origin take into account, for example, where the products are made and the materials used to manufacture them. [54] The main purpose of the “rule of origin” is to ensure that materials imported by non-parties to a particular Estv partner are “substantially processed” prior to trade between EsTV`s partners.

On February 12, 2018, the Minister of Trade, Tourism and Investment, Trade, Tourism and Investment Minister Steven Ciobo and his Peruvian counterpart Eduardo Ferreyros signed the Peruvian-Australian Free Trade Agreement in Canberra.

In Australia, the HCDC system was passed by the Tariffs Act.

The HCDC system is a classification structure for goods based on international descriptors for goods and related six-digit codes managed by the WCO. This six-digit classification clearly identifies all goods and goods traded and is uniform in all countries that have introduced the HCDC system. The WCO reviews the system every five years to reflect changes in industry practices, technological developments and changes in international business patterns. [26].
