EU – Vietnam FTA: update to Harmonised System 2022

The Trade Committee of the EU-Vietnam FTA has adopted on 16 January 2024 the Decision No 2/2024 amending Annex II (the so-called ‘product-specific rules’) to Protocol 1 (the Protocol concerning the definition of the concept of ‘originating products’ and methods of administrative cooperation).

The amendment updates the product-specific rules to the 2022 version of the Harmonised System. It also introduces a rule for leather products of Chapter 41, and a rule for knitted and crocheted products of Heading 6212, which were missing in the initial agreement.

The Decision entered into force on 1 January 2024 and has been published in the L Serie of the Official Journal 2024/838 on 12 March 2024.

For any question regarding this Decision, you may contact Christophe FONTAINE (Christophe [dot] fontaineatec [dot] europa [dot] eu (Christophe[dot]fontaine[at]ec[dot]europa[dot]eu)) from DG TAXUD/Unit A6.
