United Kingdom Certificates of Origin

We are authorised by the HM Government to certify United Kingdom (UK) Certificates of Origin and authenticate associated documents such as invoices & packing lists.

Certificates of Origin are issued to comply with overseas Customs requirements, Letters of Credit or on occasion at the request of a client.

The Certificate of Origin is a document used in international trade completed by the exporter or its agent and certified by an authorised issuing body (Chamber of Commerce) certifying that the goods are of a particular origin.

Back in April 2023, the UK Certificate of Origin moved to plain paper printing and is now issued on blank paper.  The blank UK Certificate of origin forms are no longer valid and must be destroyed.  Please click here to view the procedure.

Hampshire Chamber of Commerce operates two electronic document processing platforms, eCert and essCert.

These platforms enable exporters to apply online for certificates, have them fully approved and stamped by the Chamber and printed out on to plain paper within their own office.

On-site training is available.

For further details contact your local office.

HMRC Preference Documents

An EUR1 (movement) certificate is a Customs document which, if your goods qualify, can assist you to claim preference (meaning that your goods can be imported into overseas countries at a reduced or even zero, rate of duty) with countries where trade agreements exist with the UK.  For an up-to-date list of countries with trade agreements in place with the UK please click here

Hampshire Chamber of Commerce issues and endorses EUR1 certificates on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs.

Guidance can be found on gov.uk and Hampshire Chamber of Commerce recommends that exporters/agents review the relevant guidance prior to raising the EUR1 certificate
