International shipping from Europe to Africa: the new export procedures has come into effect on 1st September 2020

Within the framework of the EU-ESA interim Economic Partnership Agreement, from 1 September 2020, products originating in the EU shall benefit from the preferential tariff treatment of the EPA on importation into the ESA States, upon submission of an invoice declaration made out by an exporter registered in accordance with the EU legislation. (Official Journal of the European Union)

From 1 September 2020, the ESA States (Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles and Zimbabwe) grant preferential tariff treatment to products originating in the EU exclusively upon submission of invoice declarations made out by exporters registered in the EU’s REX system or by any exporter for any consignment consisting of one or more packages containing originating products whose total value does not exceed EUR 6 000.

EUR1 certificates and invoice declarations submitted by authorized exporters pursuant to art. 24 will therefore no longer be accepted to request preferential treatment in these countries for EU products exported under the agreement itself.
