Authorized Exporters 2023
We are proud to inform you that in 2023 we became Authorized Exporters, a title that allows us to be even closer to our customers who purchase our products from some non-European countries.
The Authorized Exporter status is a simplification issued by the Customs Agency (ADM) that allows economic operators who meet the requirements to declare the preferential origin of goods directly on the invoice or on other commercial/transport documents accompanying the exported products.
This simplification constitutes an alternative proof to origin certificates, such as the Eur 1 certificate, and is valid regardless of the value of the goods.
The Authorized Exporter can, in fact, make a self-declaration of origin even when the value of the exported products exceeds 6,000 euros, while up to 6,000 euros, the declaration is allowed without customs authorization, even for operators without Authorized Exporter status.
By preferential origin declaration, we mean a tool that allows us to take advantage of preferential treatment, namely tariff reductions or exemptions on imported/exported products to and from countries with which the EU has concluded free trade agreements, which comply with the origin requirements contained in these agreements.
To streamline the bureaucratic operations for issuing circulation certificates, avoiding forcing operators who do not have Authorized Exporter status to go to customs each time to request their issuance, the Customs Agency has so far allowed the use of Eur1 and ATR origin certificates.
Acquiring the Authorized Exporter status allows us to enjoy several benefits, making customs procedures more convenient and safe:
- Possibility of being subject to control only in conjunction with the practices for obtaining authorization, with consequent streamlining of customs operations
- Zero waiting times and costs for the issuance of the Eur 1 Certificate
- Reduction of risks of errors, also penalized, regarding any discrepancies between what is indicated on the invoice and what is reported in the Eur1.
- Greater awareness on the topic of preferential origin of goods
- South Korea require EA status as a necessary requirement for any international trade activity
Here is a list of the countries with which Europe has signed these agreements:
- Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador
- Countries adhering to the regional convention on pan-Euro-Mediterranean preferential rules of origin, namely:
- EFTA States (Switzerland - including Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway)
- Faroe Islands
- Participants in the Barcelona Process (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Morocco, Palestinian Authority and Gaza Strip, Tunisia)
- Participants in the EU Stabilization and Association Process (Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina)
- Republic of Moldova
Our commitment is always to facilitate our customers and ensure them the best experience.
