p. iv., сн. i. CERTIFICATES OF ORIGIN OF GOODS.

71

The aforesaid documents proving the origin or the place of dispatch
of the goods, may be produced to the Russian customs officials,
either at the time of the import of the goods into Russia together
with the B/L, &c., or when making declaration with a view to paying
a lower tariff duty, in which case the place of origin of the goods
must be shown in the column reserved for a description of the quality
of same.

In order to pay duty on goods on a lower tariff than that originally
fixed, either a declaration of the goods must be made, corresponding
to the particulars in the invoice, letter, or certificate produced with
the declaration, or the corresponding paragraph in the declaration
must show which certificate of origin or dispatch applies to the parcels
of tea declared in such paragraph. If these conditions are not observed,
the declaration is returned to the applicant for alteration, and only
when the data have been supplied in full can the payment of duty
on a lower tariff be permitted.

The rules to be observed in certifying the origin of goods have
been modified in consequence of the outbreak of the European War,
by a resolution of the Committee of Ministers of 16th December 1914.1
According to this, goods from Germany, Austro-Hungary, and Turkey
are charged under the ordinary customs tariff, 100 per cent, more
than goods which come from other countries. In order to avoid this
surtax, goods from allied and neutral countries must be accompanied
by certificates of origin, except in the case of:—

Foodstuffs and Animals.

Rice, husked and unhusked.

Groats.

Spices.

Coffee, raw in the bean, and coffee roasted, in the bean or ground.
