Under the EUSFTA, the exporter shall submit a statement of declaration on the invoice, or any other commercial document which certifies that the goods qualify as originating goods for their import into the EU. The origin declaration shall contain the text and details as set out in Annex E of Protocol 1 of the legal text, and must describe the goods in sufficient detail to enable their identification by the importing customs authority. Statements on origin will no longer have to bear exporters’ original signatures in manuscript. This can help to reduce the number of steps/processing for exporters, especially those who use declaring agents for their export processes.
