Certificates of Origin & EUR.1

A certificate of origin confirms the origin of goods that are to be exported and can be used to all countries. When exporting to certain countries outside the EU, the goods may be fully or partly exempted from import duties.

Certificates of Origin

A certificate of origin may be requested for commercial purposes or if the foreign customs require a formal certificate that confirms the origin of goods. This might be because of trade policy or statistical reasons. Your customer may also want a certificate of origin if, for example, they are to reexport the goods. Rules and guidelines for determining the origin of a product are contained in the EU Customs Code (Article 61.3) and in the Supplementary Regulation (Articles 31-36).

It is the exporter's responsibility to find which document requirements that are applicable in the importing country and how many copies of the certificate that are needed (this may vary within the same country). The certificate of origin must be printed on the prescribed forms ordered from Lamanica.

Frequently Asked Questions


The condition is that the product is a so-called originating product, which could be proven at the time of import by a Movement Certificate EUR.1. It presumes that the goods originate within the EU and that the importing country is part of the EU FTA. A EUR.1 certificate is applied for by the exporter, who is also responsible for making sure that the specified goods meet the requirements of being considered an originating product. In order for a EUR.1 certificate to be issued, a supporting document confirming the export to take place and the origin of the products must be attached.

Please note that the documentation must not contain an invoice declaration or your permit number at the Customs Office.

Together with your application for a certificate of origin and a EUR.1 certificate, you are required to provide a supporting document clearly stating the countries of origin of the goods. Examples of such documents are commercial invoices, pro forma invoices, packing lists or a manufacturer's certificate. Keep in mind that a copy of the invoice for our archive always must be attached, whether it is to be stamped or not.
