I am wondering if you can help with the difference between the country of origin and the country of manufacture? I read that country of origin is the place of last substantial change but is that not the same as manufacturing? manufacture of the product would be a substantial change wouldn't it? I am therefore jumping to the conclusion that the county of manufacture is the same as the country of origin. which I have been old isn't always the case and was given the below example:
someone gave me an example of sugar.....
The beet comes from Benelux - C of O
processed into sugar in UK - C of M
if the above example is the case then that goes against the information that says the country of origin is the place of last substantial change because the processing of the sugar would be the last place of substantial change and therefore the c of o and the c of m would be UK?
any help would be appreciated?
