Apply for electronic certificates of origin and other commercial certificates from the HWK


- The certificate of origin plays a role in the application of preferential duties and anti-dumping measures or is used for price control, the monitoring of import restrictions and similar purposes. The certificate of origin is a clear proof of the commercial origin of goods drawn up by an independent body. In international trade in goods, proof of origin is often required.
- to meet the state requirements of the receiving country:
- Control of the flow of goods
- Implementation of anti-dumping measures
- Monitoring of import restrictions and import quotas
- to fulfil obligations under private law:
- in individual cases, the use of customs reductions
- Proof of origin under export credit insurance (Hermes guarantees)
- Implementation of price and quality controls
- Customer request
- Letter of credit
- As a rule, the destination country decides on the need for a certificate of origin.

Contact persons are the Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHK).

- Upon request, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce shall issue the certificates of origin and/or other certificates used for foreign trade. For this purpose, it is necessary that you have your registered office, your permanent establishment or your residence in the HWK district and that the goods are ready for dispatch or are in the dispatch at least in the customs territory of the European Union. Blank certificates of origin cannot be issued.

- Certificate of origin of the upstream supplier
- Supplier declarations
- Manufacturer's invoices, delivery notes or other business documents from manufacturers from the European Union if they indicate that the goods have been manufactured in their own company.

Please ask the CHAMBER of Industry and Commerce responsible for you whether you need to submit further documents.
