Rules of Origin

Regulations determining where a product was created for the purpose of determining what tariff, if any, applies. In general, rules of origin consider a product to come from the country where the last substantial change occurred. For example, suppose raw material comes from Britain, is sent to Russia for refining and then is finished in Japan. If the final product is sent to the United States, rules of origin generally consider it as having come from Japan.
