Under the agreement, the proof of origin can be self-certified by any exporter for consignments valued at less than euro 6,000 to the UK and Northern Ireland.

Regarding consignments over euro 6,000, the proof of origin will be issued by organisations authorised by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

Meanwhile, shipments imported to Vietnam worth less than euro 6,000 are entitled to origin self-certification and proof of origin for shipments of over euro 6,000 can only be self-certified by qualified UK exporters.
