UK Certificates of Origin

A UK Certificate of Origin is a document which certifies the origin of goods being exported and is required by some countries as a form of evidence. A UK Certificate of Origin may be called for in any country worldwide.

This certificate can be required for different reasons such as:

  • Customs clearance, in events where the importing country may have in place quotas, anti-dumping policies, sanctions and more
  • Customs authorities requirement to determine any tariffs rates
  • Comply with banking requirements
  • Meet preferential duty requirements
  • Other official and commercial reasons
