We have received the following notification from British Chamber of Commerce today.

Turkey is refusing to accept A.TRs which do not have an original wet signature and stamp in boxes 12 (Customs Endorsement) and 13 (Declaration by the Exporter) and are returning all such movement certificates for verification. They are likely to adopt the same stance on EUR1s. We remind you that there is no legal basis for electronic preferential certificates of origin and the importing country has the discretion whether to accept them.

Therefore we would like to inform you that electronic A.TRs and EUR1s are not to be issued for goods for export to the following list of countries:

Switzerland; Israel; Mexico; Norway; Iceland; Liechtenstein; Croatia; Egypt; Lebanon, Turkey
