EUR1 Movement Certificates

We are authorised by HM Revenue & Customs, to check and stamps EUR1 Movement Certificates on their behalf.

EUR1’s are certificates more commonly known as a Movement Certificates, which enable importers in certain countries to import goods under preference, whichmeans that your customer pays a lower or nil rate of import duty on your goods.

You must make a declaration on the back of the form, stating that your goods satisfy the rules of origin as detailed in the appropriate Customs Notices. You should have copies of the Notices BEFORE completing these documents – have a look at our How to Guides for links to each of these Notices.

As with all the other export documents, you will need to include back up documents with your application, to assist us with the process.
