The Mukilteo Chamber of Commerce is pleased to provide Certificates of Origin for both members (included in bronze membership and above) and non-members ($40 per impression) upon request. If a non-member, please bring a current business license.
A Certificate of Origin is a printed form, completed by the exporter or its agent and certified by an issuing body, attesting that the goods in a particular export shipment have been wholly produced, manufactured, or processed in a particular country.
Origin does not refer to the country where the goods were shipped from, but to the country where they were made. In the event the products were manufactured in two or more countries, origin is obtained in the country where the last substantial economically justified work or process is carried out. An often used practice is that if more than 50% of the cost of producing the goods originates from one country, the “national content” is more than 50%, then, that country is acceptable as the country of origin.
