Need for the Document[edit]

  • A certificate of origin is a document used in international trade. In a printed form or as an electronic document, it is completed by the exporter and certified by a recognized issuing body, attesting that the goods in a particular export shipment have been produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. A "Certificate of Origin" is also called as "Form A“
  • 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.
  • COs also constitute a declaration by the exporter. Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all.
  • Two major types of CO’s
    • The main type issued by chambers are "Non-Preferential CO’s", i.e. ordinary CO’s which certify that the country of origin of a particular product does not qualify for any preferential treatment.
    • "Preferential CO’s" refers to CO’s which enable products to enjoy tariff reduction or exemption when they are exported to countries extending these privileges: e.g. GSP, Commonwealth Preference Certificate. Certificates of Origin may be needed to comply with Letters of Credit, foreign Customs requirements or a buyer’s request.
  • In most countries, chambers of commerce are the key agent in the delivery of certificates of origin. However, in some countries, this privilege may also be extended to other bodies such as ministries or customs authorities.

Information which might help[edit]

  • Under the Imports and Exports Regulations, there is a penalty for making a false declaration in respect of any certificate of origin, permit or certification
