Certificate of Origin

Certificate of Origin is a document that provides evidence about the goods origin and hence is an important part in establishing traceability. The certificate also helps exporters claim benefits from the landing country, provided they are eligible to do so.

These certificates are of two types

  1. Preferential – As the name suggests, India gets tariff benefits here.
  2. Non Preferential – Here no tariff benefits and the certificates serve to maintain identity only.
