Certificates of origin (COs) facilitate trade around the world. Essentially, COs certify that goods in an export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. Almost every country in the world considers the information in this document when determining customs duty and legality of import.
The Chamber’s essCert platform accepts CO requests online – eliminating courier costs, reducing errors and improving turnaround time.
Fees per certificate may apply based on investment level.
There are two options to submit your export document to the Chamber: The Tennessee Small Business Development Center (TSBDC) and the U.S. Department of Commerce Export Assistance Center. If international trade is new for your organization or you need guidance on the process, feel free to contact our partners conveniently located in the Chamber’s Downtown office.
