Certificate of Origin

Certificates of Origin are issued by Chambers of Commerce as per International Chamber of Commerce.

A Certificate of Origin is an important international trade document that certifies that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured, or processed in a particular country. They prove the origin of goods and serve as a declaration by the exporter to satisfy customs or trade requirements.

Certificates of Origin are requested by customs, banks, private stakeholders, and importers for several purposes.  Certificates of Origin are required in most countries for customs clearance procedures to determine whether the goods were legally imported or used for assessing applicable duties.

The Kitwe & District Chamber of commerce & Industry issues non preferential Certificates of Origin for goods made or produced in Zambia.

 Please contact our Secretariat should you need a Chamber Certificate of Origin.
