Israel FTA Certificate of Origin Requirements

See below information regarding Israeli Customs Authority requirements for U.S. exporters shipping to Israel under the terms of the U.S.-Israel Free Trade Agreement.
Israel FTA Certificate of Origin Requirements

As of March 31, 2018, U.S. exporters to Israel are no longer required to provide Israeli authorities a hard copy Certificate of Origin (commonly referred to as the “Green Form” or “Form A”). Instead, U.S. exporters are required to print and sign a declaration on the invoice or on any other commercial document. Please see required text below:

"I, the undersigned, hereby declare that unless otherwise indicated, the goods covered by this document fully comply with the rules of origin and the other provisions of the Agreement on the Establishment of a Free Trade Area between the Government of Israel and the Government of the United States of America.

(  ) The Exporter (whether the exporter is the producer or not)
(  ) The Producer (is not the exporter)

Tax Identification:

For this process, a “commercial document” refers to a document issued by the exporter or by the producer only, as part of the shipping documentation, including Packing List and Pro-Forma. Bill of lading/airway bills are not eligible documents according to this definition since they are not issued by the exporter or producer.

Israeli Customs Authority has announced a phase-out period through June 30, 2018. During this time, U.S. exporters can continue to use either “Form A” or the new invoice declaration.
