A Certificate of Origin is a document required by foreign governments to validate the country of origin where a product was manufactured. In order to be acceptable and valid the Certificate of Origin must be signed by the exporter, notarized and then validated by a locally designated agency, such as the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance.
