The exporter can make use of this form or type out the contents of this form on his letterhead for obtaining the certificate of origin from the EIAs. 4.4 In the event of theft, loss or destruction of a certificate, EIAs may issue DUPLICATE of certificate of origin, subject to the following: a. The exporter furnishes an affidavit, on a paper that can be executed / enforced in the court of law, explaining the circumstances in which the certificate was lost or destroyed and undertaking not to use the earlier certificate and return the same to EIA if it is located / recovered at a later date. b. The contents of the duplicate to be issued are identical to the certificate it is replacing. c. Endorsement DUPLICATE Issued in lieu of certificate no.... dated... is made in box no. 4 of the new certificate. d. Fee at the prescribed rate is charged for issued of new certificate. 4.5 In the event an exporter of bulk commodities (such as HR Coils and Plates, Wire Rods, Bullets, Structural and the like) is unable to actually ship the planned quantity / weight, EIAs may amend box 9 of the certificate, as per details give below: a.

Reasons for the same shall, however, be recorded. Physical verification has been prescribed primarily for ensuring that origin criteria / value addition norms are actually being met before a certificate is issued for a particular product.

This helps in deciding the checks that one would like to carry out for determining origin. The second advantage is that at time, one is able to observe actual use of a non-origination material in the consignment. Physical verification is to be carried out where the goods are physically available but preferably at the premises of the manufacturer. In case goods are available at a premises under the jurisdiction of another Agency / Sub Office, physical verification shall be got done through the concerned office within 3 days. In case visit to manufacturing premises is considered necessary in addition to physical verification, it may be organized through the Agency / Sub Office in whose jurisdiction the same is located within 3 days. The officer deputed for physical verification shall submit a report immediately thereafter, covering at least the following points. - Details of the consignment including the form & invoice, - Address (es) of the premises where physical verification was carried out/ visited for ascertaining compliance to prescribed origin criterion / value addition norm, - Date / time of arrival & completion of physical verification / visit, and

7 - Grounds, in detail, on which the goods are adjudged to be complying (or not complying) to the origin criterion / value addition norm prescribed at 3.2 above, and the supporting documentation, if any. Records of issue of certificates of origin / physical verification carried out shall be maintained exporter wise and for each exporter product wise, if applicable, to facilitate physical verification at the desired frequency. 4.8 In the case of application of 3.2 (b), the certifying authorities will rely upon certificates of origin issued by the Director General of Commerce, Sri Lanka as evidence of material originating in Sri Lanka. 4.9 One certificate of origin will cover only one consignment. Further, certificates of origin are to be issued only at the time of exportation and not after the goods are shipped. Retrospective issue of the certificate of origin is not allowed at all Instructions on how to fill the certificate to origin form and the application form are also enclosed. 5. FEE STRUCTURE & MODE PAYMENT 5.1 Sale price of blank form : Rs. 25/- per set/ form. 5.2 Certification Fee : Rs. 150/- per set/ form (without physical verification). 5.3 Fee for physical verification : Rs. 500/- per man-day plus actual cost of transportation. 5.4 Payment of price of blank forms, certification fee and physical verification can be made either through a Deposit Account opened with the Agency Office or through a Bankers Cheque / Demand Draft drawn in favour of the Agency and valid for at least 3 s on the date. 5.5 A Deposit Account can be opened by an exporter with the Agency / Sub Office concerned by paying initials sum of Rs. 1,000/- and remitting further amounts periodically, in multiples of Rs. 500/-, depending up on the quantum of certificated being sought.
