Along with the above, in order to simplify the procedures for customs clearance of Uzbek goods in import countries, Uzbekexpertiza JSC has introduced an electronic system for verifying certificates of origin of goods, which is carried out through the official website of Uzbekexpertiza JSC in the interactive services window in the most convenient and simple way.

In accordance with the Regulation on the Procedure for Certification of origin of goods (DCM-994 dated 13.12.2019), the authorized body is the body that carries out administrative cooperation on behalf of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which is entrusted with the function of issuing certificates for goods exported from the Republic of Uzbekistan (re—export).

In the Republic of Uzbekistan, the authorized body is the Ministry of Investment and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan or its authorized body, as well as the issuance of certificates on the basis of the declaration of the exporter /applicant is also carried out by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Uzbekistan.
