PHILIPPINES: Businesses Exporting to EU Granted Right to Self-Issue Certificates of Origin

Companies exporting from the Philippines to the European Union (EU) under the terms of the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) programme can now self-issue the required Certificates of Origin (COO). In order to qualify for this entitlement, however, companies must first register with the Filipino Bureau of Customs (BOC) and obtain an EU Registered Exporter (REX) number.

In the case of any business exporting goods valued at €6000 or less, they will be entitled to self-issue COOs without a REX number. All companies/individuals exporting to the EU, however, will be obliged to register for self-issuance by 31 December 2019, after which any existing BOC-issued COOs (Form A) will no longer be valid.
