EUR-1 / EUR-MED Movements Certificates

EUR1 Movement Certificates

An EUR1 – movement certificate is used to claim preferential (reduced or even zero) rates of duty in the country of importation for some, but not all countries with whom the UK has a trade agreement.

For those agreements, where a EUR1 should be used to claim preference, the goods must fully meet the rules of origin set out in the agreement between the UK and the destination country and be accompanied by a correctly completed and endorsed EUR1.

Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce issue and endorse EUR1 forms on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs.
