Is an End-User Certificate (EUC) systematically required ?
Increasingly, depending on the good/destination country pairing, the EUC is systematically required. For a minimum of three years (or the length of the Exporter's register retention period), you must be able to present the original of the EUC to the authorities upon request. Therefore, you must keep this in your archives. A distinction should be made between the final destination (country), the final user and the final use (lawfulness). In addition to the EUC, a non-re-export commitment may be required.
