In cases where one or more packages are being sent, the declaration of origin can be made on the invoice itself, instead of using a EUR 1 movement certificate. In such cases, however, the total value of the originating products must not exceed CHF 10,300 (or CHF 8800 under the Switzerland/Faroe Islands Agreement).

The declaration of origin is to be submitted in the form and language stipulated in the respective agreement. It must be printed, stamped or typed by typewriter and signed personally. The exporter must keep a copy of the invoice with the declaration of origin for at least three years.
The wording of the declaration of origin in English must be as follows: “The exporter of the products covered by this document declares that, except where otherwise clearly indicated, these products are of (country/zone) preferential origin.”
