Certificate of Origin (CoO)
A Certificate of Origin (COO) is an official document used to certify the country in which a product was manufactured or produced. It is typically required for international trade and customs purposes and provides evidence that goods have been sourced from a specific country.
The exporter must sign the CoO, usually accompanied by customs documentation such as invoices, shipping manifests, and other records related to the shipment.
Depending on local regulations, it may also need to be certified or completed by a government body or Chamber of Commerce before being presented at Customs offices abroad.
