Export Documentation

Since December 2015 it is mandatory for all UK exporters to legalise their Certificate of Origin and have their local Chamber certify the corresponding invoices. You can download the latest trade decrees on our Export Documentation page. 

The process takes an average of 5 business days.

For small changes, you can use the amendment service offered by the EBCC via your local Chamber of Commerce.

EUR1 certificates are customs documents - they come pre-stamped by HMRC; no other stamps are necessary.
