    Hi Tara,

    When you have a look at the rules of origin within an FTA, usually the rules are presented in a table with 4 columns, right?

    The "ex condition" is the condition that is specified in column 2, i.e. the column that describes more precisely to which manufactured products the rule is applicable. In other words, the "ex condition" is linked to the finished product and gives a more precise description of the finished product where the chapter, heading or sub-heading (column 1) is not accurate enough to describe it.

    The other conditions you are mentioning are usually the conditions that will appear in column 3 of the rule of origin and which describe more precisely the working or processing to be done on the non-originating materials. In other words, these conditions are linked to the components of the finished product and give more precise guidance of the transformation the components need to go through in order for the finished product to be considered as originating.

    Hope this helps.
