Export Documentation Service


The correct paperwork is vital for every export shipment, it’s no good having the products shipped on time then have them stuck at customs because you are missing vital documentation. At FSC Global we understand this and have over 10 years’ experience supplying the right paperwork to ensure your goods arrive on time every time.

Our in house Export documentation service is available to produce a full range of certified Customs certificates and Letter of Credit documents to meet your needs including:


European Certificate of Origin
The European certificate of origin  states the country the goods were manufactured in and the international tariff (commodity) code. These are used by the importing country to define how much duty is to be paid upon entry. Produced and certified in house, typically they take about 30 minutes to prepare and are ready to be sent with the goods to avoid any delays.


Arab-British Certificate of Origin
The Arab certificate of origin is also used to determine origin and duty rates in the importing country. They are a legal requirement in many Arab states, often the certificate of origin and the accompanying invoice require legalising by the local embassy so they are recognised by the authorities of the importing country.
We can produce & certify the certificates in house then submit them to the embassy for legalisation. The legalisation process typically takes 10 days depending on embassy holidays and workload.


EUR1 Movement Certificate
Many countries have entered Bi-lateral free trade agreements with the European  community providing import duty relief (reductions) or duty exemption on goods manufactured in the EU. To benefit from the duty relief an EUR1 certificate must be submitted to the importing country’s customs authorities upon goods entry to evidence the origin. We produce EUR1 certificates in house so they can be shipped with the consignment.


SASO Certificate
A conformity assessment programme has been implemented for all exports to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Products require a Certificate of Conformity also referred to as a SASO CoC enabling the goods to be cleared through Saudi Customs. To gain a SASO certificate an inspection must take place by an authorised inspection company.
We can arrange this for you to ensure your goods are fully compliant before shipping.

SONCAP Certificate
The SONCAP programme verifies the conformity of all products exported to Nigeria. Compliance to SONCAP requirements is applicable in addition to any existing import processes and paperwork. We can arrange inspection and certification from an authorised SONCAP inspection body to ensure your goods are not delayed once shipped

ATR Certificate
An A.TR. is a certificate for the movement of industrial products entitled to preferential duty rates, usually zero, for imports & exports between the UK and Turkey. These documents take approx. 30 minutes to produce and certify ready for shipment with your goods.


ISPM 15 Certificate
The ISPM 15 directive helps to prevent the worldwide spread of plant based pests and diseases by regulating and using chemical or heat treated wooden packaging material. We use packaging complaint with ISPM 15 regulations where applicable, this ensures your goods do not get stopped at point of entry by customs. The packaging carries the wood packaging directive logo for identification, if required additional compliance certificates can be supplied with the shipment.


Airway Bill
The Air Waybill (AWB) is the most important document issued by a carrier either directly or through its authorised agent. It covers transport of cargo from airport to airport. There are several purposes that an air waybill serves, but its main functions are evidence of receipt of goods and a contract of carriage.  AWB’s and House Air Waybills (HAWB) are normally available on the same day  as shipping the goods.


Bills of Lading
A Bill of Lading is a document issued by a carrier to a shipper, acknowledging that non specified goods have been received on board as cargo for conveyance to a named place for delivery to the consignee identified. The Bill of Lading is often referred to as B/L, BoL or BL. Once the goods are loaded onto the vessel the original BL is sent to the shipper. It can often take 10 – 14 days for the set of Bill to be released by the shipping
