Origin of Wholesale Second-Hand Books

We want to bring to your attention the following notice that we have just been made aware of regarding the Origin of Wholesale Second-Hand Books for UK Certificates of Origin.

The Certification Group of the British Chambers of Commerce have issued a new ruling on the origin of wholesale second-hand books. From this date (18.08.2023) onwards wholesale second-hand books which have been collected, sorted and packaged for shipment in the UK will obtain UK origin.

Wholesale second-hand books are typically sold by weight or quantity without specific titles being specified for low value, generally around £1 per book.

The origin rules for second-hand books sold by title, in small quantities or of high value have not changed.

Please make sure to check our upcoming RULES OF ORIGIN: PREFERENTIAL AND NON-PREFERENTIAL - OCTOBER 2023 which is designed for beginners or experienced exporters looking to refresh their knowledge.
