A Certificate of Origin (CO) confirms the origin of the exported goods. It is usually issued for goods that are being sold abroad as a permanent export. Certificate of origin may be requested for commercial or customs reasons.
From early September 2023, there will be a new process that will eliminate the need for a Blank Certificate of Origin, and you will be able to print directly onto plain paper through our online platform Ess Cert.
Any such documents will only be processed if they bear an original signature and that signature is on the company Formal Undertaking.
Please note that we can only certify or legalize original documents. Copies can also be processed, provided that they have been certified as “true copy of the original document” by a Notary Public, Solicitor or an Authorized Signatory of the company (whose signature is on the Formal Undertaking).
LCCI Members can receive up to 50% discounts on many trade documents.
