Qatar gets tough on origin

5 March 2013

Exporters to Qatar take note that Customs are refusing UK raised European Community Certificates of Origin (C/Os) for goods of foreign manufacture. They have also indicated that  they will not accept C/Os that are not issued by the country exporting the product ie an exporter in the UK cannot issue a UK C/O for goods being exported directly from France to Qatar, the C/O would need to be raised in France.  Exporters are advised to check requirements with their importer before shipping.
We have also received new requirements for goods shipped by air to Doha, click here to view. Again exporters are advised to check requirements before shipping.
