The EUR.1 movement certificate is a form, which is used in international commodity traffic. The application of this form is based on application of various bi- and multilateral agreements within the Pan-European preference system (the European Union Association Agreement).

In the free trade agreements goods are defined, which apply to cheaper rates of duty or to be completely duty-free introduced, on the condition that they were completely manufactured in a member country or in such were so far worked on that they become on an equal footing in accordance with the agreements of the origin of the products. In order to profit from the preferential rate during a customs clearance, a EUR.1 movement certificate, in short EUR.1, must be handed over to the competent authority (usually a customs administration), in which the manufacturer certifies the origin of the goods.

The EUR.1 is recognized also as a certificate of origin in the external trade in legal sense. In place of a movement certificate also a declaration of origin on the invoice can be provided by the manufacturer or sender of the goods, if the amount of items with EU preferential origin of a single shipment does not exceed 6,000 -If it concerns an approved exporter, the delimitation of 6,000 Euro applies. If it is not an approved exporter it does not apply, The creator of such a movement certificate or declaration of origin must be able to prove the origin characteristics of the goods with a possible check on supplier declarations.

The exporter fills in the form and then hands it over or sends it in to the competent authorities, usually customs, who stamp it and send it back to the exporter.

Future (as of 2007)

With the introduction of the Pan Euro Med Free Trade Area, which is partially in place, the EUR.1 certificate will be replaced by the EUR-MED certificate for countries that are part of this Free Trade Area. This process is however as of May 2007 not complete.

Furthermore, the European Commission has presented a draft in which certificates will be replaced by declarations of origin instead. These declarations will not have to be stamped by the competent authority and can also be submitted electronically to the importer.
