What is a Certificate of Origin?

A Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured, or processed in a particular country. In order to be valid, the certificate of origin must be signed by the exporter and countersigned by a chamber of commerce.

Why do I need one?

The commodity being exported and its destination determines if the CO is required. The purpose of the CO is to authenticate the country of origin of the merchandise being shipped (where it was made). It all depends on the rules and regulations of the country where the shipment is going.
