Certificate of Origin - Shipping to Canada or Mexico?‎

About the U.S. Certificate of Origin
Some destinations require a Certificate of Origin (CO) for certain commodities. The purpose of the CO is to authenticate the country of origin of the merchandise being

For those forms that are completed online, this application is designed for goods whose origin is the U.S. or Puerto Rico only.
The CO may be required because of established Treaty arrangements, varying duty rates, and preferential duty treatment dependent on the shipment´s origin.
The CO verifies the country in which the goods were manufactured. The commodity being exported and its destination determine if the CO is required. Some nations restrict
imports from certain countries; many countries limit the quantity of goods that are allowed to be imported, or give preference to goods manufactured in the U.S.
This form requires the authorized signature of the local Chamber of Commerce Secretary and the seal of that organization.
Use the NAFTA CO for destinations to Canada and Mexico if the goods qualify as North American Origin goods.
The descriptions and amounts on the CO must be consistent with those entered on the Invoice.
