Certificates of Origin

Every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed. The BBA attests to the origin of goods by embossing its seal on a document called the certificate of origin. The BBA processes certificates of origin for area manufacturers to export their products. The BBA’s standard procedure is to stamp our seal on a manufacturer’s document, and, if the manufacturer brings to the BBA the original certificate, a copy of the certificate, and an accompanying invoice for the certificate. We maintain for our records a copy of the certificate and the invoice. Some of these documents may also need to be notarized. The cost per certificate is $6 for members of the Birmingham Business Alliance and $12 for non-members.
