The new rules apply to free trade agreements signed with China, Caricom, the partial one with Venezuela, and the European Union, said Luis Obando from the Chamber of Industries.

"Of these four treaties, three have already defined Procomer as the certifying agency, in the case of Caricom the Ministry of Foreign Commerce (Comex) has been designated the role. For all of them, the certification body will now be the ‘Unidad de Origen en la Ventanilla Única de Comercio Exterior‘.(Dedicated Desk for International Trade)

Another change is that the office not will not only certify documents, but must also confirm that the production process conforms effectively with the origin.", reported El Financiero on its website.
