UK EUR1 Movement Certificate

An UK EUR1 Movement Certificate is used to support claims for preferential (usually zero) rates of duty in the country of importation. To qualify the goods must be of UK origin and meet the rules of preferences, be supported by a correctly completed and endorsed UK EUR1. The preference system only applies to countries where certain trade agreements exist with the UK.

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

In order for you to apply for a UK 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. 

Please contact for further information and assistance with this service, and how you can access it in person, by post, or by E-Cert. A guide on how to complete the EUR1 Movement Certificate can found here.
