Certificate of Origin

About Certificates of Origin:

A Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document which attests that goods in a particular export shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in the USA. This trade document also provides a declaration by the exporter. Virtually every country in the world uses CO's to determine assessed taxes and if the goods can be legally imported. The 1923 Geneva Convention made Chambers of Commerce worldwide the official organizations to issue, sign and stamp Certificates of Origin's. We are proud to provide this service to our business community. The East Orlando Chamber has specific requirements to authenticate CO's. Follow these guidelines to avoid any delays. Appointments are required, walk-ins will not be accepted. Call 407-277-5951 or email

  • Missing or inaccurate supporting documents will cause the document to be rejected.  Supporting documents MUST match the information provided on the Certificate of Origin.

Review all supporting documents thoroughly to ensure consistency with the information provided on the Certificate. Make any necessary corrections before arriving to the Chamber.
