Self-Certification is a system which enables the certified exporter to make out an Invoice Declaration for the export of goods by their own. The information in the invoice declaration is less than what appears in ATIGA Form D. It will gradually replace the conventional ATIGA Form D which is currently being issued by the Issuing authority i.e. MITI. A separate OCP has been formulated for the purposes of the Pilot Project.

Benefits Of Self-Certification Scheme

  • Self-Certification would:
    • reduce the costs associated with CO Form D applications;
    • facilitate trade;
    • enhance competitiveness; and
    • maximize the use of AFTA Preferences.
  • Certificate of Origin will be self-certified by the exporter.
  • Manufacturer has better knowledge on the origin of raw materials as well as manufacturing process compared with the issuing authorities i.e. MITI.
  • No such requirement specimen signatures need to be exchanged.
  • No such need frequent verification of signatures requested which will delays clearance of goods.
  • Facilitating intra -  ASEAN trade (Shipments not held back by approval of COs);
  • Reduce business cost.
  • Time and cost savings (no submission of manufacturing statements).
  • Maximize the efficiency of the government limited resources.
  • Government Authorities may cut down the administrative infrastructure.

How To Do Self-Certification And The Declaration

If your company is registered with MITI, currently utilizing Form D to Brunei, Cambodia, Myanmar, Singapore and Thailand and has good track records with MITI and Customs, MITI would like to offer your company to apply as Certified Exporter for Asean Self-Certification.

The Certified Exporter shall, in the case of export of products satisfying the origin criteria of the Agreement, put the following declaration on the invoice which is also need to be stamped and signed by the Certified Exporter. 

INVOICE DECLARATION STATEMENT

The exporter of the product(s) covered by this document (Certified Exporter No……) declares that, except where otherwise clearly indicated, the products satisfy the Rules of Origin to be considered as ASEAN Originating Products under ATIGA (ASEAN Trade in Goods:………) with origin criteria:……….
