On September 6, 2018, the Costa Rican General Director of Customs and the General Director of Foreign Trade and Application of Commercial Agreements published Guidelines in the Costa Rican Gazette for the application of the Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Costa Rica and the People's Republic of China (Resolution RES-DGA-001-2018-DGCE-RES-ADU-0001- 2018).

This publication defines, among other things, what the “justifying documents” are according to Article 45 of the treaty, such as commercial invoice, bill of lading and airway bill.

The guidelines also determined when China may issue retrospectively a certificate of origin for the second time due to technical reasons.
