Certifying your goods for export
We conduct factory inspections, process your Certificates of Origin and provide you with much needed information on the Trade Agreements between Trinidad and Tobago and the world.
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.
