Certificates of Origin are one of the most common commercial documents that are required for an international transaction. Failure of the exporter to provide the correct certificates to a buyer can cause delays in clearance, storage charges and even fines and penalties.
Chambers of Commerce are the trusted issuing party authorized to sign Certificates of Origin. In that capacity, they must assure that they are in compliance with international regulations. This seminar will discuss the following:
- The need for consistent Certificate of Origin processing across all Chambers of Commerce
- How to determine if what are you certifying is legal and abiding by US export regulations (including what countries are embargoed )
- Your Chamber’s liabilities if you do not do your due diligence when processing Certificates of Origin
- How to respond if you are asked to certify documents other than Certificates of Origin
