Clarification of CETA Origin Declaration in the European Union

     Euro-Canada flags

Canada and the European Union (EU) have differing requirements for preferential origin declarations.  The EU obliges EU exporters to be registered in the REX system for consignments of above €6,000 and to use the REX number in the statement of origin to export, even if the Canadian requirements for claiming preferences do not have this requirement.   

All EU exporters are encouraged to register in REX as they may make bigger value shipments in the  future.

To qualify for preferential duty rates upon importation, exporters in Europe or Canada must provide a valid CETA Origin Declaration on an invoice, or other commercial document, or as a blanket declaration on their letterhead.

For more information, contact Brian Rowe, Director – Customs Compliance & Regulatory Affairs.
