Certificates of Origin
A certificate of origin identifies and certifies the country where the goods originated. It may be required by the government of the country where your goods are imported. It also is considered to determine how much duty the importer will pay to bring in your goods.
Who needs it?
Exporters need a Certificate of Origin to comply with Letters of Credit, import Customs requirements or a buyer’s request.
The Tustin Chamber of Commerce processes and seals Certificates for members and non-members. Members of the Tustin Chamber of Commerce are provided FREE Certificates of Origins at no additional cost. For non-members, there is a $25 fee per certification.
Please call our office at (714) 544-5341 with any questions.
