Certificates of Origin

Do you ship goods internationally? If so, you might find yourself in need of a Certificate of Origin. A Certificate of Origin is a document required by some foreign governments, which proves in which country the good was manufactured. In order to be acceptable, the Certificate of Origin must be signed by the exporter, notarized, and then validated by a locally designated agency, such as the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber will only issue certificates for goods made in the United States during business hours (Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm EST).

By submission of your Certificate of Origin to the DACC, your organization releases the DACC from any and all liability. The DACC can only verify what the signee has presented as true and reliable. If the signee has falsified the origin of the goods made, DACC cannot be held responsible in any lawsuit.  No further vetting has occurred.
