The Certificate of Origin (CO) is a document to certify the place of growth, production or manufacture of goods.
This certificate is required when exporting to specific countries, when requested by the consignee for customs clearance, or when it's stipulated in a letter of credit.
The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) is authorised to issue Certificates of Australian Origin by the Australian Government. Business SA is in turn authorised by ACCI to issue documentary evidence of origin in South Australia. Business SA is the only South Australian-based Chamber with authority to issue Certificates of Australian Origin. The Chamber also issues documents such as Certificates of Free Sale and Certificates of Manufacturing, as well as providing certification services for other documents such as commercial invoices, packing lists and visa letters.
