Certificates of Origin

A Certificate of Origin is a document used in international trade, which identifies the origin country of the goods being exported. It is a mandatory document by various country customs organizations. In many countries, the duty rate and the admissibility are affected by the country of origin of the goods. Failure to properly declare the origin of goods may result in delay, higher duty/tariff rate, fine/penalty, entry denial or seizure.

The Richardson Chamber provides a service to members and non-members to have their Certificates of Origin verified, stamped, and signed by a Richardson Chamber staff member.
