What is an ATR document?

Chamber International is authorised to issue ATR1 certificates on behalf of H.M Revenue & Customs.

An ATR document enables goods to qualify for tariff preferences on imports and exports between the EC and Turkey.  Comprehensive information on ATR’s can be found in Customs Notice 812

We are here to help you. No matter where you are in the UK we have a dedicated service that can walk you through the ATR process, to take away the confusion so you can get on with what matters to you. Much of what you need to know is wrapped up in Customs Notices and busy exporters don't always have time to read this detail. If it's the same for you, contact Alison Holmes, our ATR specialist, for help.

Goods which normally qualify for preference are:

  • Industrial products: goods which originate in, or are in free circulation in either the European Community or Turkey.  

  • Agricultural products: most agricultural products qualify for preference only if they originate in the European Community or Turkey.  Further information can be found in Customs Notice 812, Section 5.

  • European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) products: ECSC products qualify for preference only if they originate in the European Community or Turkey.  Further information can be found in Customs Notice 812, Section 4.
