What is the Approved Exporter Status?

It is an authorization issued by the Customs Agency that allows any economic operator to give proof of the preferential origin of the goods exported directly using the invoice declaration and without any limitation in the amount.

The invoice declaration submitted by the Approved Exporter substitutes the issuance of the EUR 1 movement certificate for the exports towards Countries that have a trade agreement with the EU. Thanks to this declaration, your customer in the destination Country won’t have to pay customs duties or will have to pay inferior customs duties. It is a simplification set out in Art. 120 of the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 2015/2447.

What are the main advantages?

Do you deliver your goods using the Ex-works condition? Do you trust the customs representative that is filling out the EUR 1 form for you? Can you avoid any risk related to the wrong filling of the form? Yes! Thanks to the Approved Exporter Status authorization, you’ll be able to personally verify what is declared in the invoice. 

This means:

  • Eliminating the risk of criminal penalties (discrepancies between what is declared in the invoice and in the EUR1 certificate);
  • Eliminating the queue times in the customs offices;
  • Eliminating the costs related to the issuance of the EUR 1 movement certificate.
