In a supplier’s declaration, suppliers make a statement about the preferential origin of their goods in accordance with the prescribed wording of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447. The requesting exporter primarily uses this declaration as a previous document when issuing proofs of preferential origin such as a movement certificate EUR.1 or invoice declaration.
If you resell purchased goods unchanged, the supplier's declaration you received is the basis for issuing a supplier’s declaration to your customer. As a rule, supplier’s declarations are used in intra-Union trade. For cumulation purposes, however, they can also be used in the trade with certain third countries.
A long-term supplier's declaration is valid for a maximum of 24 months from the start date of its validity period. It can also be made out retroactively for goods delivered before the making out of the declaration for a validity period of up to 12 months prior to the date of issue. In this case, the validity period shall end no later than six months after the date of issue.
