Preferential Certificates of Origin (EUR1 and ATR Forms)
The European Union has concluded trade arrangements with certain non-EU countries that allow exports from the EU to enter the markets of these countries at a reduced or nil rate of duty. They also allow imports from these countries into the EU at a reduced or nil rate of duty. These arrangements are known as Preferential Trade Agreements and the duties involved are referred to as preferential rates of duty.

Joint-Arab Irish Certificates of Origin
The JA-ICC is responsible for the checking, certification and legalisation of commercial documents for the Arab markets. The Arab-Irish Certificate of Origin should be used for the 19 Arab countries represented by JA-ICC. The Arab-Irish Certificate of Origin is issued by the JA-ICC directly to its members and is also distributed through the local Chamber network throughout Ireland for non members. JA-ICC Certificates of Origin must be certified by the JA-ICC following completion by the exporter. When there is a requirement for certificates and other documents to also be legalised, the JA-ICC will arrange this with the relevant Arab embassy. The Certificate of Origin is required for the following reasons:
• It is a legislative requirement of the importing Arab country
• To comply with Letter of Credit or banking requirements
• It is proof of origin for importer
• To meet customs authorities requirements
Certificates of Origin can be accepted in Arabic and French. If your certificate is in either of these languages, please provide an English translation.
For further information on the import requirements of the Arab states represented by the JA-ICC, please refer to the JA-ICC website: www.jaicc.ie
Non-members: Certificates of Origin can be purchased directly from your local Chamber of Commerce. All documents must be stamped by your local Chamber before submitting to the JA-ICC.
