  • RE: Importing 3rd country goods from EU

    Thanks for the clarification Customs oldtimer. It's a pity that as most of the value of the seed is added in the EU by the processing/grading/treatment etc of the seed, but it still can't be claimed to be of EU origin as the commodity code heading hasn't change - or at least that is how I understand it.
  • RE: Importing 3rd country goods from EU

    Thanks for all your replies - much appreciated. L M - Very interesting to hear that if our supplier has an EU-endorsed CHED then the seed can be said to be of EU origin. This could save us a lot of duty as they also supply seed to us that originates in countries that we don't (as of yet) have an FTA. I will ask if they have one. Thanks again.
  • Importing 3rd country goods from EU

    Hi all We regularly import seed from the EU (France and the Netherlands) that is of EU or Chilean origin. The UK has an agreement with the EU and Chile that 0% duty should apply to such goods. Our supplier uses their REX number and a preferential statement for the goods of EU origin but there are unsure whether they can use the same REX number for the Chilean goods. Does anyone know what they should do in the case of Chilean goods? Do they need a different REX number, or is it impossible to claim preferential origin on these goods? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
