Dear Commissioner Alberto Lina,


Subject:

Guidelines Issuance Form A Certificate - AOCG 033A-2016

Thank you for your office's assistance recently during the visit of ED's Directorate-General
for Taxation and Customs Union (TAXUD).
The meetings were useful in clarifying the processes regarding EUs preferential trade
arrangements.
DO TAXUD was also pleased with your office's follow-up on the Joint Mission Report,
notably on the rules on retrospective issuance ofFonn As. Your memo dated 12 April 2016
(No 033A-20 16) regarding 'guidelines in the issuance of Certificate of Origin Form A under
the EU Generalised System of Preferences' is appreciated.
The memo, however, puts a de facto time delay by stating that the date on box 12 (Exporter
Declaration) in the Certificate of Origin Form A must be earlier than the date of shipment in
the bill of lading! airway bill. While this is indeed as intended according to the EU regulation,
that regulation does not specify this should be a full, separate, day. By interpreting the rules as
such, express delivery services (who usually do both in one day, thus including Box 11 and
Box 12) are faced with unnecessary delays.
Would you mind slightly amending your otherwise good memo by changing in Article 2
'earlier than' into 'on or before' the date of shipment? This way the above situation would be
covered and you can still follow the order of things (but during the same day).
This is in line with the conclusions of the TAXUD mission, who welcome your good
cooperation.

Franz Jessen
Ambassador
