CHAPTER I.—Certificates of Origin of Goods.

Goods imported into Russia from countries which have concluded
commercial conventions with the Empire, are subject to the so-called
Conventional Customs Tariff, while goods imported from other
countries come under the ordinary tariff. Further, in times of tariff-war
between Russia and other countries, higher duties are levied on goods
originating in those countries. Goods imported from countries which
levy a higher import duty on Russian than on any other goods are,
in like manner, charged higher customs duties than those imported
from other countries. It is, therefore, important to prove the origin
of goods paying lower import duties in Russia. According to the
Regulations of the Russian Minister of Finance of the 3rd Feburary
1901, relating to the documents necessary to prove the origin of goods
exported from States enjoying in Russia the privileges of the
most-favoured nation clause, such proofs may be :—

1. Invoices or original letters from manufacturers, or their
representatives, duly legalised by the Russian Consular Officer of the
district, or by the municipal, county, or police authorities of the place
of manufacture ; or

2. Certificates of origin issued by the Russian Consular Officers,
by the local Chamber of Commerce, by the municipal authorities,
by the police, or by the local custom house.

From these Regulations it will be observed, that if the documents
enumerated have been legalised by the local authorities, it is
unnecessary to have them attested by Russian Consular Institutions.

The above papers proving the origin of goods imported into Russia
must contain particulars as to the number of packages of goods,
their marks and numbers, and their gross and net weights, and a
technical and commercial description of the goods.

If the goods enter Russia directly from their country of origin,
it is only necessary to produce one of the aforesaid documents at
the Customs. If they enter Russia from a country which is not
their country of origin, it is necessary to produce the original invoices
or letters of the manufacturers of the goods or duly legalised copies
of such documents, showing the marks, numbers, gross and net
weight, quality and quantity, and trade marks, if any, of each package
or bale or parcel of goods.

By the term " direct importation of goods into Russia from the
country of their origin," must be understood : (a) the importation ■
of goods by sea from a port of the country of origin to a Russian port, (
without transhipment or unloading in the port of a third country ;
