ASEAN-wide Self-Certification (AWSC)



What is ASEAN-wide Self-Certification (AWSC)?


The ASEAN-wide Self-Certification Scheme (AWSC) is a trade facilitation initiative that allows exporters who have demonstrated their competence to comply with ATIGA rules of origin requirements, known as “certified exporters”, to self-certify the origin status for their goods to be eligible for ATIGA tariff preferences. With the implementation of the AWSC, the Certified Exporters are now able to make out Origin Declaration to all of the ASEAN Member States. The AWSC scheme has been implemented since 20 September 2020 across the region.
