CCI is officially authorised by the Australian Government to issue documentary evidence of origin (Certificates of Origin) for goods exported from Australia in accordance with the relevant international conventions.
The Chamber also issues documents such as Certificates of Free Sale and Certificates of Good Manufacturing Practice, as well as providing certification services for other documents such as commercial invoices, price lists, agency and distributorship agreements and visa letters.
What is a Certificate of Origin?
A Certificate of Origin is an export document that verifies the country of growth, production or manufacture of the goods specified thereon and is officially required by the customs authorities of many countries. In addition, the document is often requested by buyers to satisfy themselves that the products they are importing are wholly obtained, produced or manufactured in a particular country.
Some documents (particularly exports to the Middle East) require further legalisation by foreign embassies and consulates. CCI can assist you with the correct procedures.
Procedures require that exporters must first be registered with CCI for the issue of Certificates of Origin.
