Enabling Environment

A COO (Certificate of Origin) is a document used by an exporter, declaring that the goods being exported are of a certain origin and qualifies for preferential treatment or duty-free access in accordance with the relevant Rules of Origin. This is a criteria established under a Trade Agreement that determines whether a good or service will qualify for any treatment when traded.

This can be accessed via the TTBizLink website.
