Instructions[edit]

Certificate of Origin is an instrument which establishes evidence in origin of goods imported into any country. These certificates are essential for exporters to prove where their goods come from and therefore stake their claim to whatever benefits goods of Indian origin may be eligible for in the country of exports.

The two categories of Certificate of Origin (1) Preferential and (2) Non-Preferential

Preferential

Preferential arrangement/scheme under which India is receiving tariff preferences for its exports are:

  • Generalised System of Preferences (GSP)
  • Global System of Trade Preferences (GSTP)
  • SAARC Preferential Trading Agreement (SAPTA)
  • Asia-Pacific Trade Agreement (APTA)
  • India-SriLanka Free Trade Agreement (ISLFTA)
  • Indo-Thailand Free Trade Agreement
  • India-Malaysia Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (IMCECA)
  • India-Korea Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA)
  • India-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IJCEPA)
  • Asean-India Free Trade Agreement

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 COs
    • The main type issued by chambers are "Non-Preferential COs", i.e. ordinary COs which certify that the country of origin of a particular product does not qualify for any preferential treatment.
    • "Preferential COs" refers to COs 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.
