CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN
Avilla Chamber of Commerce offers online Certificates of Origin through an affiliation with the American World Trade Chamber of Commerce. A Certificate of Origin is an international trade document attesting that goods in an export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured, or processed in a particular country. Completing your Certificate of Origin online through Avilla Chamber helps eliminate the likelihood of errors and reduces the cost. Also, key information is stored, allowing for repeat certificates to be created without the need for repetitive form filling.
Exporters and freight forwarders must register to access the Certificate of Origin program through a dedicated Avilla Chamber Web portal. Once the registration form is received, login credentials will be provided by Avilla Chamber. Documents will bear the seal of AWTCC, which is registered with customs authorities worldwide.
What Is A Certificate Of Origin?
Millions of COs are issued every year, facilitating trade around the world. Since as early as 1898, Chambers of commerce have been issuing non-preferential COs.
The 1923 Geneva Convention and subsequent Kyoto Convention have seen governments formally recognize the important role chambers play in this domain, deeming them competent authorities and credible trusted third-parties in the issuance of COs.
Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining the duty that will be applied to the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all.
In addition, COs may be needed to comply with letters of credit, foreign customs requirements, or a buyer’s request.
Beyond the CO - Legalization
The most common countries requiring embassy or consulate legalization include: Algeria, Argentina, Bahrain, Bolivia, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Paraguay, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Qatar, Tunisia, UAE and Yemen.
Our chamber, in partnership with AWTCC, offers this service to system users. Each document is quoted on an individual basis prior to processing. Simply request legalization service with application.
