Origin Requirements
 Origin requirements are defined in the tender dossier of EuropeAid tenders.
(typically article 10 in the tender special conditions) These requirements can differ per
 Most common requirements is: “All goods purchased must originate in a Member
State of the European Union (EU Origin), or a country covered by one of the
EuropeAid Programs (IPA / ENPI / EDF / DCI)
 Rarely EU Origin is deferred, but it happens in some cases
 For these purposes, "origin" means the place where the goods are mined, grown,
produced or manufactured and/or from which services are provided. The origin of the

Origin requirements specifically for products manufactured by Agilent
For Agilent products articles 24 and 41 of the EU Community Customs Code apply
 Article 24: “Goods whose production involved more than one country shall be
deemed to originate in the country where they underwent their last, substantial,
economically justified processing or working in any undertaking equipped for that
purpose and resulting in a manufacture of a new product, or representing an
important stage of manufacture”
 Article 41 determines how reasonable quantities of accessories, parts and
consumables, obtain the same origin as the system manufactured under article 24
and of which they are an integral- and dependently functioning part. These goods
must be shipped with the system and be part of the Certificate of EU Origin.
!! For independently functioning accessories such as chillers (coolers), gas
generators, computers, printers, UPS systems, microwave digesters and robotic
sample preparation devices, EU manufactured systems with a separate Certificate of
Origin, or Long Standing Manufacturers’ Declaration must be supplied.
