Onward Processing Relief (OPR)

OPR provides duty relief on imports from third countries of goods which have been produced from previously exported European Community (EC) goods. It enables businesses to take advantage of cheaper labour costs outside the EC, while encouraging the use of EC produced raw materials to manufacture the finished products. Goods may be also temporarily exported to undergo processes not available within the Community.
