14. (1) A good is not an originating good by reason of having undergone production that occurs entirely in the territory of one or both of the CCFTA countries that would enable the good to qualify as an originating good if subsequent to that production
(a) the good is withdrawn from customs control outside the territories of the CCFTA countries; or
(b) the good undergoes further production or any other operation outside the territories of the CCFTA countries, other than unloading, reloading or any other operation necessary to preserve the good in good condition, such as inspection, removal of dust that accumulates during shipment, ventilation, spreading out or drying, chilling, replacing salt, sulphur dioxide or other aqueous solutions, replacing damaged packing materials and containers and removal of units of the good that are spoiled or damaged and present a danger to the remaining units of the good, or to transport the good to the territory of a CCFTA country.
(2) A good that is a non-originating good by application of subsection (1) is considered to be entirely non-originating for purposes of these Regulations.
(3) Subsection (1) does not apply with respect to a good of any of subheadings 8541.10 through 8541.60 and 8542.10 through 8542.70 where any further production of other operation that that good undergoes outside the territories of the CCFTA countries does not result in a change in the tariff classification of the good to a subheading outside subheadings 8541.10 through 8542.90.
