Certificates of Origin

Certificates of Origin (COs) are international trade documents used to determine the origin of goods for official, commercial and financial reasons. COs attest that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured, or processed in a particular country (country of origin).

The Chamber has adopted eCert technology as our standard to process certificates of origin. eCertify is a user-friendly online tool that allows exporters and freight forwarders to create, submit and collect electronic Certificates of Origin from your desktop.

The benefits include:
  •  Faster document certification
  •  Reduced costs — no need for couriers or mail
  •  Reduced manual data entry, improving accuracy
  •  Immediate notification of certificate acceptance or rejection
  •  Industry standard — designed to work for all types of electronic submissions
  •  Works with virtually any software — can link to ERP software
