WTO Ministerial Conference(6th) was held in Hongkong(12. 2005). The membership countries have to submit the report its own tariff schedule until July. 2006. Currently Korea have made FTAs with Chile and Singapore and this year is negotiating with U.S.A. In this situation, rules of origin is a commercial policy to protect infant industry. However, an internationally Harmonized Rules of Origin have not built. It means that each member country could make out its own Rules of Origin on FTA. The Tariff Shift Rules have been employed as a criterion for determining the country of Origin in the most of FTA as well as NAFTA and WTO Harmonized Work Program. But because in most of FTA the countries have different characteristics by industries, we need to take a more flexible response to protect the domestic industry. And it is necessary that more considerable origin criterions should be applied for each FTA. This study focused on the limitation of WTO rule and a plan to apply rules of origin on each FTA.
