Preference and Non-Preference Certificates of Origin – "No Deal" Brexit Contingency Planning for Exporters
The British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) have been working with HMRC and the Department of International Trade (DIT) on contingency planning for the issuing of Certificates of Origin, EUR1’s and ATR’s in the event of a 'No Deal' Brexit.
Should the United Kingdom reach a Withdrawal Agreement with the EU, then the existing documents that you currently issue will continue to be used throughout any transition period.
Preference Certificates - EUR1 & ATR forms
In the event of a 'No Deal' scenario the EUR1 & ATR forms will no longer be valid for preferential origin exports leaving the UK.
UK Trade Agreements: Signed or under negotiation
These forms will be replaced with a new, UK version BUT can only be issued for preferential exports to countries the UK holds Preferential/Free Trade Agreements with.
Non Preference Certificates - Certificates of Origin
In the event of a 'No Deal' scenario the European Community Certificate of Origin forms will no longer be valid for UK exports.
These Certificates will be replaced with a new, UK version. The format and layout for the new Certificate will be almost identical to the current EC one.
We have made preparations to enable us to provide you with continuity of service through the issuance of revised “United Kingdom” documentation. These will be ready and available in time for March 29th.
