Certificate of Origin

A certificate of origin is a document widely used in international trade transactions which attests that the product listed therein has met certain criteria to be considered as originating in the USA. A certificate of origin is prepared and completed by the exporter or the manufacturer and may be subject to official certification by the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce or another authorized third party. It is often submitted to a customs authority of the importing country to justify the product’s eligibility for entry and/or its entitlement to preferential treatment.
