The Australia-Chile Free Trade Agreement (ACl-FTA) entered into force on 6 March 2009. Under the ACl-FTA, goods qualifying as Chilean originating goods by meeting the requirements of the ACl-FTA Rules of Origin, may enter Australia at preferential rates of duty.  The same Rules of Origin apply for Australian originating goods entering Chile.
