EUR1 and A.TR Movement Certificates

An EUR1, also known as a ‘movement certificate’, enables importers in certain countries to import goods at a reduced or nil rate of import duty under trade agreements between the EU and beneficiary countries.

Suffolk Chamber is authorised to issue EUR1 certificates on behalf of H.M Revenue & Customs.

In order for you to apply for a EUR1, you will need the Harmonised System (HS) code for your products. This is a system of product coding and classification used by customs authorities around the world and is also known as a ‘Tariff Number’. You can search for your HS code using the EU’s Applied Tariffs Database and entering your goods description in the 'Full Text Search' box.

You will then be able to use your HS code to check the rules of origin that apply to your products in H.M Revenue & Customs Public Notices. The website can be searched for rules in relation to individual markets, or for Generalised System of Preference (GSP) countries.

A.TR Movement Certificates

A.TR certificates are more commonly known as Movement Certificates. A.TR’s are similar to EUR1’s but are solely for shipments to Turkey. They enable importers in Turkey to import goods under preference, which means that your customer pays a lower or nil rate of import duty on your goods.

You must only complete an A.TR if you know that your goods satisfy the rules of origin as detailed in Customs Notice 812.

Customs Notice 812 also gives a comprehensive guide how the A.TR should be completed, and factors that should be considered before completing the document.
