What is EX-A Document?

The EX-A document is an export document required for consignments produced within or cleared in the European Union (EU) and leaving its territory. This document is needed for goods that will not be returned to the country of origin.

The EX-A document contains information about the shipment, including the consignee’s name and address, the goods’ description, and their value. It serves as proof of the goods’ legal exportation from the EU and is required for customs clearance in the destination country. The exporter must complete and sign the EX-A document and present it to the authorities at the EU exit point.
