Certificates of Origin

The 1923 Geneva Convention named Chambers of Commerce the official body to issue, sign and stamp Certificates of Origin worldwide. Chambers of Commerce are asked to stamp and sign documents called certificates of origin. These certificates are prepared by exporting companies (or their agents, known as freight forwarders) to show where their products were made. For chambers, the key task is not to find where the products were made, but to check that the documents are correctly completed, the certificate of origin matches the commercial invoice, and the document is signed by a designated person from the exporter. Many chambers do not charge for this service, but ACCE recommends that they do Ė because to do this job correctly requires training and careful attention. Chambers should absolutely not lend out their corporate seals to any company. ACCE has a corporate partner, eCertify, which provides an electronic means of handling certificates of origin.

Chambers automatically have the authority to issue Certificates of Origin and you can obtain a stamp (seal) from any rubber stamp-making company (the chamber tells/shows them what the chamber seal looks like (if you have one) or create a seal if you donít have one).
