As an importer, processor, and manufacturer of products made of vegetable oils and fats, we are bound to the statutory provisions of the numerous EU preferential tariff agreements when issuing supplier’s declarations and long-term supplier’s declarations – these are, among others, Council Regulation (EC) 1207/2001, or Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447 becoming effective on May 1, 2016, respectively.
For products containing sunflower oil or rapeseed oil, we regret not being able to issue a supplier’s declaration or long-term supplier’s declaration at present, unless the product you ordered from us is included in the HS position 1518 in terms of tariff preferences. This holds true both for pure grades and for products containing a share of sunflower oil or rapeseed oil.
As far as products made of tropical oils and fats – coconut oil, palm oil, or palm kernel oil – are concerned, we are only allowed to issue a supplier’s declaration or long-term supplier’s declaration if the product you have purchased from us can be allocated to one of the following customs tariff numbers (HS positions):
In all remaining cases, we cannot issue a supplier’s declaration/long-term supplier’s declaration. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the fact that we also cannot issue a supplier’s declaration or a long-term supplier’s declaration for goods without preferential origin status (i.e. negative declarations) in these cases.
As far as requests concerning the origin of goods in terms of foreign trade legislation or commercial law are concerned (certificate of origin as a certificate under public law, issued by the competent Chamber of Industry and Commerce), please contact Mrs Isabelle Plauschinat at our premises. We are careful to point out that we will have to charge a fee for this service.
