Certificates of Origin

The Amherst Chamber of Commerce is an authorized Certificates of Origin issuer.

A Certificate of Origin is an international trade document that certifies that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly, obtained, produced, manufactured and processed in a particular country.

They also serve as a declaration by the exporter.

A Certificate of Origin must be signed by the exporter, notarized and then validated by a designated organization.

To obtain a Certificate of Origin from the Amherst Chamber of Commerce:

  • Complete a Document of Indemnity here
    • The document needs to be notarized before it can be authorized. Typically, the bank or a local UPS store can notarize it if you don't have a company notary public.
      • The Amherst Chamber can not notarize and validate the documents.
    • Complete a Certificate of Origin Form here and bring both documents to the Chamber offices.
