Certificates of Origin

Dear Certificate of Origin client:

Based on your valued feedback, we are pleased to offer an improved and block chain secured Certificate of Origin (COO) platform, that will join our existing line of digital export documentation services!

Starting Oct. 1, this new, comprehensive digital solution, brought to you in partnership with Fast Track Global Services (FTGS), will change the way exporters and freight forwarders handle regulatory needs by providing step-by-step guidance and built-in legalization/apostille options, while providing the highest level of security and document traceability.

As the first Chamber in the nation to partner with FTGS to offer a complete, digital export documentation solution for Certificates of Free Sale, Good Manufacturing Practices and Good Standing, in addition to document legalization and now Certificate of Origin, we are excited to share this new resource with you and provide any needed assistance to help you transition to the platform. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality service and customer satisfaction, so please do not hesitate to reach out should you have any further questions.

For existing COO clients:
Please note that Thursday, Sept. 26 will be the last day to submit an application in essCert. After Sept. 26, any document applications that have been submitted through the existing platform -- essCert -- will not be processed, nor will you be able to access documents issued in the past. We strongly recommend you access your essCert account and download or print any past issued documents for your records. Should you need further guidance on this matter, please contact Liliana Saucedo, 213.580.7569.

The new platform will be live on Tuesday, Oct. 1. Current FTGS users for CFS/GMP will be able to log into their existing account and create a COO application (available Oct. 1).

Contact FTGS customer service for more information and any support questions:
