Certificates of Origin – Designation of Origin

We would like to clarify that, according to the International Certificate of Origin Guidelines, goods that originate in the EU should be designated as of ‘European Community’ origin. The rules allow that when there is a trade requirement, this statement can be amplified to indicate the individual state of the European Community, e.g. European Community – Cyprus.

When goods are manufactured or produced by processes performed in two or more member states, the rules specify that such goods must be designated simply as of ‘European Community’ origin without further amplification.

Please note that abbreviations are not acceptable. Use of EC-CY is not permitted.

For more information or clarifications, please contact the Chamber with which you issue your Certificates from.

Thank you for your cooperation.
