Some countries outside the EU ask for a Certificate of Origin because of trade policy measures such as boycotts, import restrictions and import quotas. In some countries with a CoC you also have to pay less or even no import duties at all. The most favored nation (MFN) import rate then applies.
Without a Certificate of Origin you may encounter difficulties if you want to import products in a certain country. You should think of delays in transport and / or the customs clearance procedure, rising costs, fines or refusal of goods at the border. After all, based on the CvO, a country decides whether or not you can import the product. You do not usually need a CoC within the EU.
What is the advantage of a Certificate of Origin?
Based on a CvO, a country can decide whether or not you can import a product. With a CvO, a country also examines whether the MFN import tariff applies. This rate is usually lower than the general rate. Do you export to countries with which the EU has concluded a trade agreement? Then you use a EUR.1 certificate.
