CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN SERVICES

The Chamber authorizes Certificates of Origin to local businesses for the purpose of facilitating trade around the world. A Certificate of Origin is a document attesting that goods exported in a shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country.

Before issuing your first Certificate of Origin, businesses are required to obtain a notarized letter of waiver from a lawyer or a notary public certifying from a person’s sworn statement, that the facts described in her/ his signed documents are true. Click here for sample.

Members receive this service free as a benefit of membership. Contact us before you ship or travel for your Certificate of Origin.
