In some countries, an EUR1 document can help your buyer import your goods more cheaply under preference. Preference means that your buyer may pay lower or nil rates of import duty on your goods.
All notices can be downloaded free of charge by accessing the following link: http://www.hmce.gov.uk/forms/catalogue/catalogue.htm#800 or by calling the National Advice Service on 0845 010 9000 for a printed version.
The preference-giving countries are: the countries of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), that is, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein (covered by the EEA - European Economic Area) and Switzerland; Faroe Islands; Israel; Ceuta and Melilla; "Mashraq Group" - Eqypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and "Maghreb Group" - Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia; some of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP) and Overseas Countries and Territories (OCT) details of which may be obtained from the Department of Trade and Industry. A full list of these countries can be found in Volume 1 Part 7 of the Tariff; Mexico; West Bank and Gaza; South Africa; Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM); Croatia and Chile.
Donor Country Content Only: The Balkans (Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro including Kosovo), Bosnia Herzegovina and Albania). GSP (Generalised System of Preferences) Countries - see Notice 826 and 828 for further details.
Originating goods are either: wholly produced in the EC; or have been sufficiently processed in the EC to be classed as "originating". This means work done elsewhere in the EC can help meet the origin rules.
The origin rules for goods of all Tariff headings are set out in Notices 828 and 829. These may vary according to the Tariff heading and the country to which the goods are exported.
