First Protocol

In 2014, member countries agreed on a Protocol that will amend the Agreement establishing AANZFTA. This Protocol responded to implementation issues associated with Certificates of Origin and Rules of Origin, providing for greater streamlining of the certification for movement of goods throughout AANZFTA countries. The First Protocol is in force for all AANZFTA countries except Indonesia.

Second Protocol

In 2023, member countries agreed on the Second Protocol that will upgrade the Agreement establishing AANZFTA. The Second Protocol amends the existing AANZFTA to modernise its commitments while also adding new areas into the Agreement. The Second Protocol will update AANZFTA’s trade rulebook as well as market access commitments in services and investment. This will bring AANZFTA’s provisions into line with comparable recent FTAs. The benefits include simpler processes at the border for New Zealand goods and a modernised approach to e-commerce.

The Protocol will help ensure AANZFTA remains a modern, high-quality FTA that supports New Zealanders to effectively and efficiently export to and invest in the ASEAN region.

The Second Protocol was signed by New Zealand at the sidelines of the 55th ASEAN Economic Ministers’ Meeting on 21 August 2023 in Semarang, Indonesia. Once the Second Protocol enters into force, the provisions of the Second Protocol will effectively replace the provisions of the original AANZFTA Agreement and First Protocol, where provided for in the Second Protocol.
