What are EUR1 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.

Chamber International is authorised to issue EUR1 certificates on behalf of H.M Revenue & Customs and 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 EUR1 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 H.M Revenue & Customs information booklets and busy exporters don't always have time to read this detail. If it's the same for you, contact our EUR1 specialist Alison Holmes for help.

How to apply for an EUR1

  1. 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’ by entering your goods description in the 'Full Text Search' box.
  2. Use your HS code to check the rules of origin that apply to your products in H.M Revenue & Customs Public Notices 828, 832 (for exports to Mexico only) or 830 (for Generalised System of Preference ‘GSP’ countries). 
  3. Telephone Chamber International on 0845 034 7200 to order the forms. Orders received before 4pm Monday to Friday are despatched the same day by first class post. A handling fee of £6 including VAT is payable at the time of ordering. (We accept debit and credit cards).

How do I complete an EUR1?

Please refer to Customs Notice 827, Section 11.

How much does it cost to issue an EUR1?

The issue fee is £46.92 including VAT. You can pay by debit/credit card or cheque payable to Chamber International.

What other documents do I need to send with my application?

We will need a copy of your export invoice, payment of the issue fee and an SAE if you require your document returning by post.

Where do I send my EUR1 application?

Post your application to: Chamber International, Devere House, Vicar Lane, Little Germany, Bradford BD1 5AH, West Yorkshire.

How long will it take to get my EUR1?

Correctly completed applications received by post are issued and posted back to applicants the same day.

Can I apply for an EUR1 after shipment?

What if I lose my EUR1?
