Certifiable Export Documents

The West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce can certify a vast range of export documents that are needed when trading internationally. Our export team can advise you through the process and help get you the export documents you need.

Certifiable Export Documents Include;

European Certificates of Origin

The European Community Certificate of Origin is a commercial or customs clearance requirement in some countries to evidence the origin of the goods. A European Community Certificate of Origin may be called for in any country worldwide.

EUR 1 Form (Movement Certificate)

An EUR1 Movement Certificate is used to support claims for preferential (usually zero) rates of duty in the country of importation. To qualify the goods must ‘originate’ in the UK or EU and be supported by a correctly completed and endorsed EUR1.  The preference system only applies to countries where certain trade agreements exist with the EU.

ATR Movement Certificate

The ATR Movement Certificate entitles goods which are in ‘free circulation’ in the EU (for example the goods are EU-originating, or on importation into the EU and all relevant duties and taxes have been paid) to receive preferential import duty treatment when shipped to Turkey. This applies to all eligible goods except agricultural goods, minerals and steel which require an EUR1 Movement Certificate.

When completing an ATR form it is advisable that the exporter or authorised agent consults HM Revenue & Customs.

Arab-British Certificate of Origin

An Arab-British Certificate of Origin is a Customs clearance requirement in some countries to evidence the origin of the goods and may also be requested by the importing company. These documents may be used for Arab League States as listed below:

Arab League States

Abu Dhabi (U.A.E.) Dubai (U.A.E.) Lebanon Qatar Sudan Yemen
Ajman Fujairah (U.A.E.) Libya Ras al Khaima (U.A.E.) Syria
Algeria Iraq Mauritania Saudi Arabia Tunisia
Bahrain Jordan Morocco Sharjah (U.A.E.) Umm al Qairain (U.A.E.)

Notarisation & Legalisation
