Certificate of Origin for Goods Made in China

Table of Contents

A certificate of Original is a shipping document. It is usually to meet customs or trade requirements.

Most countries have different customs duty rates for imported goods from different countries. Sometimes, some countries will provide different tariff rates based on whether you have a C/O.

The products made and exported from China can have the original certificate of China. When importing goods from China, you can check with your local customs authority to see if you just need a C/O or if you can benefit from getting a proper C/O. If yes, you can ask your supplier to provide one. The process is easy and cost-free.
