Accessories, spare parts, tools and instructional or other information material.- The origin of accessories, spare parts, tools and instructional or other information materials presented with the products shall not be taken into account in determining the origin of the products, provided that such accessories, spare parts, tools and instructional or other information materials are –

(a) in accordance with the standard trade practices in the domestic market of the exporting party; and,

(b) classified with the products at the time of assessment of customs duties by the importing party:

Provided that, if the products are subject to a qualifying AIFTA content requirement under these rules, the value of such accessories, spare parts tools and instructional or other information material shall be taken into account as originating or non-originating materials, as the case may be, in calculating the qualifying AIFTA content.

11. Indirect Materials.- For determining whether a product originates in a party, any indirect material such as power and fuel, plant and equipment, or machines and tools used to obtain such products shall be treated as originating whether such material originates in non-parties or not, and its value shall be the cost registered in the accounting records of the producer of the export goods.

12. Identical and interchangeable materials.- For the purpose of determining origin of a product, when it is manufactured utilising both originating and non-originating materials, mixed or physically combined, the origin of such materials can be determined by generally accepted accounting principles of stock control applicable or inventory management practised in the exporting party.

13. Certificate of Origin.- Any claim that a product shall be accepted as eligible for preferential tariff treatment shall be supported by a Certificate of Origin as per the specimen in the Attachment to the Operational Certification Procedures issued by a Government authority designated by the exporting party and notified to the other parties in accordance with the Operational Certification Procedures as set out in Annexure III annexed to these rules.

Annexure I
[see sub-rule (6) of rule 5]

METHOD OF CALCULATION FOR THE AIFTA CONTENT

1. FOB price shall be calculated as follows:
(a) FOB Price = Ex-Factory Price + Other Costs

(b) Other Costs in the calculation of the FOB price shall refer to the costs incurred in placing the products in the ship for export, including but not limited to, domestic transport costs, storage and warehousing, port handling, brokerage fees, service charges, etc.

2. Formula for ex-factory price:

(a) Ex-Factory Price = Production Cost + Profit

(b) Formula for production cost,

(i) Production Cost = Cost of Raw Materials + Labour Cost + Overhead Cost

(ii) Cost of Raw Materials shall include:

· Cost of raw materials

· Freight and insurance

(iii) Labour Cost shall include:

· Wages
· Remuneration
· Other employee benefits associated with the manufacturing process
(iv) Overhead Costs, (non-exhaustive list) shall include, but not limited to:

· real property items associated with the production process (insurance, factory rent and leasing, depreciation on buildings, repair and maintenance, taxes, interests on mortgage)

· leasing of and interest payments for plant and equipment

· factory security

· insurance (plant, equipment and materials used in the manufacture of the goods)

· utilities (energy, electricity, water and other utilities directly attributable to the production of the good)

· research, development, design and engineering

· dies, moulds, tooling and the depreciation, maintenance and repair of plant and equipment

· royalties or licenses (in connection with patented machines or processes used in the manufacture of the good or the right to manufacture the good)

· inspection and testing of materials and the goods

· storage and handling in the factory

· disposal of recyclable wastes
