Certificate of Origin

This an important international trade document which identifies the origin of the goods that you're exporting.

It can be required for different reasons such as customs clearance in the buyer's country, or payment via a Letter of Credit so it's vitally important that you submit the correct documentation.


The best and most cost-effective way to apply for a Certificate of Origin is through our secure online service. But we also offer a postal service for those who prefer.

Our online platform is quick and easy to use, and we offer a same day turn-around for the following documents:

  • United Kingdom Certificate of Origin
  • Arab-British Certificate of Origin *
  • UK EUR1 Movement Certificate

As an accredited Chamber of Commerce our export documentation team have been certifying these documents for decades. If you want a fast solution where you'll save time, money and hassle on your Certificates of Origin then don't hesitate to get in touch.

Please note, due to UK leaving the European Union on 31st December 2020 the European Community (EC) Certificate of Origin has been replaced by a United Kingdom Certificate of Origin and the EU EUR1 has been replaced by a United Kingdom EUR1 form. ATR Movement Certificates are no longer needed or issued when importing from or exporting to Türkiye. There is no replacement document for the ATR. However if a Turkish customer requests a UK Certificate of Origin we can process these for shipments to Türkiye, although they are not legally required. 

* Arab documents often require legalisation and will take longer to obtain.
