What is a Certificate of Origin?
Certificates of Origin (CO) are an essential component of international trade. They confirm that the goods in a particular shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country.
COs may be requested by importing countries’ Customs Departments, importers, freight forwarders or banks.
Each day we issue Certificates of Origin, Free Sale or Manufacture and endorse other export documents so you and your business can trade internationally, with ease.
Register with our electronic certifying service today and complete your export documents online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’ll then certify and return them to you electronically, during standard business hours (9am – 4.30pm, Mon – Fri).
Certifying can be arranged outside these hours by prior arrangement and for those countries not yet accepting electronically certified documents, please refer to our wet stamping service.
Certification for Wet Stamps
The term 'wet-stamped' means physically stamping a document. Some countries still need this type of stamp.
Please return your filled-out forms to us in person.
