Certificate of origin EUR1, required for Exporting from the European Union

You will need to process the EUR1 certificate of origin. At Connecta we are experts in processing the EUR1 certificate of origin, as well as other customs papers necessary to successfully carry out commercial transactions abroad.

What is the EUR1 certificate?

To begin with, you should understand that the EUR1 is a document used to export products manufactured in the European Union and destined for nations with which the EU has trade agreements. In addition, customs laws in almost every country require proof of origin before allowing products to enter their jurisdiction.

“The EUR1 is a certificate that verifies the origin of goods in the EU, allowing the exporter to benefit from advantageous tariff treatment in the nation to which the goods are being shipped.”

As the name implies, it is a document that verifies the origin of the goods, in this case from a member nation of the European Union, and therefore qualifies the merchandise for preferential tariff treatment in the country to which it is exported. Consequently, the verification of the origin of the goods through the EUR1 can offer economic advantages to both the exporter and the importer, such as free or reduced customs duties. The EUR1 certificate is only valid for products manufactured in EU member states; it is not valid for products created in other countries and then re-exported from EU territory.

How is the EUR1 certificate of origin processed?

The EUR1 certificate is applied for at the customs office of origin of the goods, i.e. the country from which the goods are to be exported, but is presented at the customs office of export destination. In this way, the customs officials of the third nation receiving the goods are certain that the goods have been produced in the European Union. Thus, in Spain, the EUR1 document must be requested at the Customs and Special Taxes Department of the Tax Agency, which has numerous offices of the Customs and Special Taxes Department spread throughout the national territory. It should be remembered that a certificate must be requested for each export. This certificate is valid for four months from the day it is granted by Customs.

“The EUR1 is requested at the customs office of exit from the EU and presented to the customs office of the country of export destination.”

The document must include the names and addresses of the exporter and consignee, the country of origin and destination of the goods and the type of items. You can see an example of the by visiting the European Union website.


Also, if you are not sure which third countries require the EUR1 model, you can examine them on the site of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Trade. In addition, you should know that when you show the document at the customs office of exit, you will have to present the DUA (Single Administrative Document) for export.
