Summary/Abstract: Freedom of international trade implies an unobstructed flow of goods and services between countries. Its content was built up over years of commercial practice, and in modern times it was emanated in national and international normative rules, primarily in the law of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Freedom of Trade is based on minimal government interference in the international trade relations, which are developed on the basis of the law of supply and demand in the market. On the other hand, the purpose of the rules of origin is to prevent a country that is not a contracting party to a preferential trade agreement to take benefits that this kind of agreement provides to the contracting parties. If a product contains materials originating outside of the member parties to the agreement, or if the part of the manufacturing process was conducted there, it is necessary to define the limits of the amount of material that is used or the level of production process outside the territory of a certain trade agreement that must not be exceeded if the product is to obtain originating status.
