Certificate of Origin


A Certificate of Origin (CO) is a document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained or produced or manufactured or processed in a particular country (country of origin). Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all.

The Philippine Chamber of Commerce & Industry (PCCI) is authorized by the Philippine Government to issue Certificate of Origins (CO). The CO is a basic requirement in customs clearance or trade documentation for goods of origin exported by local registered companies. For the convenience of all the CO applicants, the PCCI provides options to process the CO for the convenient of the applicants.

Here is the step by step guide to help you process the CO:
