What is a EUR1 certificate?
The EUR1 certificate is a form that is used in international commodity traffic. The certificate is used to certify the origin of a product. And furthermore it enables importers in certain countries to import goods at a lower import duty under agreements between the EU and beneficiary countries.
How do I get a EUR1 certificate?
The applicant for the EUR1 (the exporter) must first be able to prove the origin of the goods. This is usually done via presentation of the supplier invoice stating the product origin. The exporter then fills in the EUR1 application form, and hands it over to the competent authorities (usually the customs office) along with the supplier’s invoice. The authorities certify the form with a stamp and send it back to the exporter.
