DESCRIPTION OF EXPORT TERMS

Manufactured in the EU (or Turkey)
Goods are manufactured in the EU (or Turkey) if they originate in the EU (or Turkey) or the place of manufacture is in any of the EU member countries (or Turkey)

Free Circulation status within the EU (or Turkey),
– Goods imported from outside the Community or Turkey have ‘free circulation’ status if all import formalities have been completed and any customs duties or equivalent charges have been paid and not repaid in whole or in part, or

– Goods manufactured in the Community and/or Turkey wholly or partly from materials or parts originating outside the Community or Turkey have ‘free circulation’ status if all import formalities for the materials or parts have been completed and any customs duties or equivalent charges have been paid and not repaid in whole or in part.

The above qualification for ‘free circulation’ is valid irrespective of the ‘ origin ’ of the goods. For this reason, the ATR constitutes an advantage over the other existing preferential agreements (e.g. EUR1).

Certification
Certification is the validation of the authenticity of a document. TBCCI is an authorised Chamber under the authority delegated by the government to complete certification processes such as the ATR.

Legalisation
Legalisation is the confirmation that a signature, seal or stamp on a company or personal document prepared by a Chamber of Commerce, UK solicitor, notary public or registrar is authentic before such documents can be accepted outside the United Kingdom. Depending on the purpose of the use of documents outside the UK, the certified documents may have to be legalised by the Turkish Consulate in London or the FCO, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
