Certificates of Origin

To avail of our export documentation services:

  • Complete an indemnity form
  • Submit the indemnity form with sample signatures of the authorised signatories in your company.
  • Non-member companies will also have to supply a copy of their Certificate of Incorporation or Certificate of Registration of their Business Name or a banker’s reference.

Dublin Chamber of Commerce can stamp documents submitted once they are:

  • Signed by one of the authorised signatories we have on file


  • Issued by a government department or agency and show the company name and address of a company registered with Dublin Chamber of Commerce..

Dublin Chamber issues and certifies non-preferential certificates of origin.

Preferential certificates of origin (i.e. EUR1 and ATR forms) are issued by, and can only be stamped by, Customs.

Non-preferential certificates of origin issued by Dublin Chamber of Commerce are:

Arab Irish certificates are for use when goods are being shipped to any of the 19 Arab League countries (Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen).

EC certificates are used for all other destinations.

There is an on-line facility for processing both EC and Arab Irish certificates of origin and related documents. This facility is provided in conjunction with TradeCert. and enables you, after purchasing the certificates as normal, to print out certificates of origin, with the Dublin Chamber of Commerce stamp, at your desk. Using this system negates the need to courier or bring your certificates to the chamber and provides easy solutions in the event of mistakes being made on the certificates or related documents submitted for stamping.   For information on how to use this system please see the Tradecert Quick Guide for Exporters.  You will be registered for using this system when you complete and return your indemnity form and authorised signatory list.

Sometimes, at the request of importers both EC Arab Irish Certificates may have to be processed manually. The best procedure for this eventuality is:

  • Purchase the blank certificate of origin.
  • Fill in all the necessary details (there are instructions for completing the certificate on the back of the pink copy of the EC certificate and  blue copy of the Arab Irish certificate).
  • When the information has been properly entered then the pink copy of the EC certificate and the blue and green copies of the Arab Irish certificate are signed by one of your authorised signatories and the original 3 or 4 part certificate is sent in to the Chamber, along with any extra documents your customer requires, to be stamped.
  • All Arab Irish certificates submitted for stamping must be accompanied by the relevant commercial invoice signed by one of your authorised signatories. If you do not need this to be stamped then please mark it ‘DCC records only’.

 If you are processing a certificate manually:

  • Photocopy two copies of the certificate.
  • Fill in the required details on the template and print on to one of the photocopies. (There are instructions as to what information is required on the back of the pink copy of the EC certificate and the blue copy of the Arab Irish certificate)
  • When you are sure that all the required information is appearing in the correct places then print on to the originals.
