|Removal of Documentary Proof of Origin Requirements for Textile and Clothing Products (DPO)
25 Apr 2012
The Department for Business Innovation and Skills has recently published the following information:
“The EU documentary proof of origin requirements for textile and clothing products in force since 1998 (Council Regulation (EC) No. 1541/98 and Commission Regulation (EC) No. 209/2005) have been repealed (Council Regulation (EU) No. 955/2011).”
“There has been no specific requirement for documentary proof of origin of imports of textiles and clothing into the EU since 24 October 2011.”
“Mandatory Documentary Proof of Origin is now only required if you are claiming a tariff preference, for example, under the EU’s General Scheme of Preferences (GSP) where a GSP form A (which confirms the origin of the goods) is required to claim the GSP duty preference.“
