What is a Certificate of Origin?

Certificates of Origin are a documentary system used in modern international trade for millions of transactions around the globe every year. A Certificate of Origin is a document to certify the location of growth, production or manufacture of goods. The Certificate identifies goods and contains an express certification by a government authority, or other empowered body, that the goods in question originate in a specific country.

 

Why do I need a Certificate of Origin?

Certificates of Origin allow an importer to make a claim about an imported good which can then be used and trusted by the authorities of both the foreign government (importing Customs) and by the importer themselves, when the goods cross the border at their destination.

 

What are Certificates of Origin used for?

Certificates of Origin are used for customs clearance in the destination country for trade statistics, sanctions and quota applications, antidumping administration and for the applications of preferential tariff treatments. Certificates of Origin can also be requested by the overseas buyer or the business receiving your goods. In some instances the company receiving the goods will require a Certificate of Origin before authorising their bank to issue a letter of credit and thus payment.

In accordance with some free trade agreements, Certificates of Origin are required as part of the application for preferential tariffs. For example, Australian exports must be registered under the Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) and accompanied by a TAFTA Certificate of Origin in order to qualify for the preferential rates under the agreement.

What is the difference between a Preferential and Non-Preferential Certificate?

Certificates of Origin are issued according to the destination country requirements, and this determines which type of Certificate is issued. There are two types of Certificate of Origin: Non-Preferential and Preferential.

Non-Preferential Certificates are used in trade with most countries to assist with the collection of statistical information, and manage adherence to government sanctions and antidumping regimes, quotas, general tariffs, etc. They are also often required to support the trade finance requirements of banks.

Preferential Certificates may be issued if the destination country is one where there is a Free Trade Agreement in place with the Australian Government. These Preferential Certificates assist Customs authorities to assess the compliance with the terms of the relevant agreements’ Rules of Origin and tariff treatment in the destination country i.e. if the destination country is China, then the appropriate Preferential Certificate would be a China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) Certificate.

Authorised state and territory chambers can advise on the best certificate for your requirements.
