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. With a membership with the Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce, we will authenticate these documents for you free of charge! (For non-members, we charge $45.00 plus HST per authentication).
