In partnership with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Guelph Chamber of Commerce is pleased to offer the services of TradeCert Canada – a simple, secure and timesaving solution to certificates of origin.
What is a Certificate of Origin?
- A certificate of origin (CO) is a document attesting that goods exported in a shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country.
- COs may be requested by customs administrations, importers, freight forwarders or banks for clearance of letters of credit.
- The issuance of a CO is an important function for chambers of commerce as many countries view chambers of commerce as credible organizations and require that they authenticate documents with their stamp or seal.
