Preferential and non-preferential origin

Binding Origin Information (BOI)

BOI is a European Union (EU) wide system. This system allows you to obtain a decision from an individual EU Member State on the origin of your goods. These decisions are legally binding throughout the EU. It is not mandatory for you to obtain a BOI. However, if you wish to have the origin of your goods clarified you can use the BOI system.

To apply, you should complete the application form for BOI.
