A Certificate of Origin (CO) is a document which states the origin of goods being exported. Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all.
A Certificate of Origin is an export document certifying that the referenced goods were produced in the United States. The ERCGP provides Certificates of Origin to chamber members as a benefit of membership free of charge.
