CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN
A Certificate of Origin is an important international trade document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce is a key agent in the delivery of these documents. Please download the PDF form below, complete it per the instructions on this page, and bring the notarized form with the necessary paperwork to our office.
Certificate of Origin Policy
1. The Certificate of Origin must be filled out completely and notarized before being presented to

the Chamber before a Certificate of Origin is issued. This will be updated annually or when there
is a change of signatory officer.
