Completing a U.S. Certificate of Origin
The U.S. Certificate of Origin (CO) is used to verify the country in which the goods being shipped were manufactured, for reasons including established treaty arrangements or preferential duty treatment. The commodity being exported and its destination determine if this form is required. The CO requires the authorized signature of the local Chamber of Commerce Secretary and the seal of that organization.
Most of the information required to complete a U.S. Certificate of Origin will be provided when you complete the shipment information and the Commercial Invoice. In addition to the information already provided during these steps, you will be asked to supply the following:
Number of Packages in Shipment – Provide the total number of packages included in your shipment.
Product Weight – Provide the total weight of the products being shipped in pounds (LBS) or kilograms (KGS).
If needed, you may make changes to the U.S. Certificate of Origin during the shipment review process (UPS Ship Tool Step 2 of 3: Review Shipment) To edit this form, click the form's corresponding "Edit Form Contents" button.
Once you've finished creating the shipment, you may print the U.S. Certificate of Origin using the "Print UPS International Forms" button on the shipment confirmation screen, or using the "Print International Forms" link in Order Manager.
