    2. The following documents must be scanned: -

The processor must submit this letter to confirm that the goods are locally processed by him and have complied with the origin criteria applicable to the products
      3. These Letters of Declaration may be a yearly declaration (if these are obtainable). Otherwise, a declaration on a per application basis is acceptable.

      The Authorised Organisation also reserves the right, but has no obligation, to conduct physical inspection of the goods under application and to verify the particulars furnished by the applicants.

    Occasions may arise when an applicant has difficulty in producing the full supporting documentation listed above. Where applicants have valid reasons for their inability to comply in full, they should consult the Certification Officer of the Authorised Organisation.
