Information which might help

It is strongly recommended that copies are submitted with the original set of Arab-British Certificate of Origin forms, this will ensure a reduced fee.
In the event of copies being submitted subsequently for certification, then the original document fee will be payable. The original Certificate of Origin form, or a photocopy of it showing the A-BCC stamp, is required as a back up and the serial number of the original Certificate of Origin must be entered on copies.

Other uses of the Document/Certificate

The Certificate of Origin is required for the following reasons:

  • It is a legislative requirement of the importing country.
  • It may be required by a Letter of Credit.
  • The importer may want the goods to be of a certain origin
  • The Customs authorities may require proof of origin.

In some agreements, only the competent authorities are allowed to issue or authenticate a proof of origin, which is normally a certificate of origin in a prescribed format.
