The Richmond Chamber of Commerce provides certification of documents required for export of goods. Documents include certificates of origin, commercial invoices, letters for business visas, and others.
Certificate of Origin is a document, required by foreign governments, declaring that goods in a particular international shipment are of a certain origin. Even though the commercial invoice usually includes a statement of origin, some countries require that a separate certificate be completed. Customs offices will use this document to determine whether or not a preferential duty rate applies on the products being imported. Certificates of origin are important because of trade agreements and regulations that might apply to goods coming from the Canada.
Documents received between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday will be processed within the hour. Those that arrive after 4:30 p.m. will be processed the following business day.
As a matter of policy and for reasons of liability, all documents presented to us must be notarized before the Chamber certifies them. Freight Forwarders/Exporters that frequently use our service often find the notarization process costly and time consuming; an alternative to notarization of these documents is through a “Letter of Waiver”.
