Certificates of Origin

What is a Certificate of Origin?

A Certificate of Origin (CO) is a document which states the origin of goods being exported. Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all. A Certificate of Origin is an export document certifying that the referenced goods were produced in the United States. The ERCGP provides Certificates of Origin to chamber members as a benefit of membership free of charge.

If you need a Certificate of Origin issued by the ERCGP, please:

  • Complete, sign and have the appropriate Certificate of Origin
  • Attach all original shipment invoices for all items referenced on the certificate
  • All requests and documents must be made in person at the ERCGP office, located at 208 East Bayfront Parkway, Erie, PA
  • Any questions on this process can be directed to the Chamber staff at 814-454-7191
