Certificates of origin of goods Form "A", in compliance with the General System of Preferences (GSP)
The certificate of origin of goods Form “ A ” has to be produced for the traders to benefit of preferential treatment at the importation of Bulgarian goods, i.e. this is a preferential certificate.
Bulgarian exporters can benefit of preferential treatment when importing goods in other countries if the goods meet certain requirements. The basis is the concept of the origin of goods, i.e. the exporting country has to prove that the goods were produced entirely in the country, or, that they have undergone a sufficient degree of processing, according to the accepted preferential schemes. This fact is proved and certified by certificates Form "A".
Certificates of origin Form "A" are validated by BCCI in 1 original and 3 copies, at the request of the exporting company. They have to be filled in legibly in English or French. The forms of the certificates are made according to the requirements of the General System of Preferences.
A separate certificate of origin has to be issued for each individual shipment. For example, if certain goods are exported by three trucks, the goods in each truck have to be accompanied by a separate certificate of origin.
The Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry validates certificates of Origin – Form “A” issued by all kinds of Bulgarian tradesmen.
The documents are received and processed by the BCCI experts working in Sofia and by the BCCI experts stationed in the Regional Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
