The State Customs Service will issue EUR-MED certificates from September 21, Deputy Minister of Development of Economy, Trade and Agriculture, Trade Representative of Ukraine Taras Kachka has said.

“As early as Monday, the customs service will issue EUR1 and EUR-MED certificates of origin for all EU member states (Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein) in a form of the application of diagonal cumulation of origin,” he wrote on Facebook on Friday.

“That is, the free trade regime applies to goods that may include all components of the goods from Ukraine, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, Denmark, Estonia, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Finland, France, Croatia, Czech Republic, Sweden, Great Britain (at least for the duration of the transitional agreement with the EU), Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein,” the trade representative said.

This became possible before a formal decision was made between Ukraine and the EFTA due to the general agreement of the parties on the possibility of applying Article 30 of the pan-Euro-Mediterranean cumulation and the PEM Convention, Kachka said.
