What is a Certificate of Origin?

A Certificate of Origin is a document which certifies the origin of goods being exported and is issued by a Chamber of Commerce. It is required by customs in the buyer’s country for customs clearance.

There are two types of documents which you can apply for, UK Certificate of Origin and Arab-British Certificate of Origin. Arab-British Certificates of Origin are processed through a Chamber of commerce but are legalised by the Arab chamber or relevant embassy depending on customer/country request. The type of certificate depends on the requirement of your overseas customer and the destination of the consignment.
