Need for the Document[edit]

A Certificate of Origin is a document used in International trade that states from which country the shipped goods came from. The abbreviation CO or COO is often used as reference to the country where the goods are actually made but not the country where the goods are shipped from. It is used by Customs to establish the origin of goods imported into the country and to determine whether the importer qualifies for a preferential rate of tax where that is applicable. A Certificate of Origin indicates that goods imported fulfill the requirements to be considered as originating from a particular country. Here is a procedure on how you can obtain one.
