Certificate of Origin
About Certificate of Origin
Certificates of Origin (COOs) hold significant importance for international trade. They are essential documents verifying that the goods within a specific export shipment have been entirely sourced, created, manufactured, or processed within a designated country. Furthermore, these certificates represent a formal declaration made by the exporter.
Every country around the globe considers the origin of imported goods when determining the applicable customs duties or, in some instances, whether the goods are legally eligible for importation. The official responsibility of issuing, endorsing, and sealing Certificates of Origin on a global scale was bestowed upon Chambers of Commerce by the 1923 Geneva Convention.
The Seminole County Chamber has specific requirements to authenticate Certificates of Origin.
Appointments are required. Call 407-708-4605 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
An Affidavit and Indemnification Agreement must be signed and accompany the Certificate of Origin
