Certificate of Origin (CO)

What is Certificate of Origin
A Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document confirming that the goods in a particular shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country.

There are 2 major types of CO:

Preferential CO : issued to cover eligible exports for preferential tariff exemption or reduction under free trade agreements (FTA).
For more information about applying for a preferential Certificate of Origin, please refer to India Customs website.

Non-preferential CO : issued for goods which do not enjoy preferential treatment.

COs may be requested by importing countries’ Customs Departments, importers, freight forwarders or banks (for letter of credit clearance).

Since we are the only transnational chamber of commerce and due to the widespread network of our partners in both the continents, we can get the certificate of origin from respective country chambers
