  • eCertify

    A Certificate of Origin—also known as a COO—is a document used in international trade. It is a form, completed by the exporter or its agent and notarized by a Chamber of Commerce, which attests that the goods in a particular export shipment have been wholly produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country.  The "origin" refers to the country where the goods were made.

    Mailing or sending couriers to get your Certificates of Origin stamped is both inefficient and costly. eCertify, is the efficient way to process COO's via an online portal, and saves you time and money.

    That’s why the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce has adopted the next generation eCertify technology as our standard to process your Certificates of Origin. With eCertify, Exporters and Freight Forwarders now have a secure, seamless and streamlined electronic solution providing real value in cost savings and efficiency gains. Eliminate your paper-based processing of COO’s and start saving time and money today! Click here to learn more.
