Country-of-Origin Certifications

Addison-Clifton provides assistance in the supplier collaboration process to determine the country-of-origin of goods to be exported or imported.  A Certificate of Origin (“COO”) is an international trade document which attests that goods in an export or import shipment are wholly-obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country.  COOs also require a declaration by the exporter.  Every World Trade Organization member country considers the origin of exported or imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods.
