Export Documentation

No matter what a company is exporting or to where it is exporting to, generally a certain amount of paperwork is involved and the documentation required varies depending on what is being exported and to where. This can sometimes present difficulties for exporters whether they are experienced or doing so for the first time
In Ireland, the only official designated authorities for the issue of certificates of origin are the local Chambers. This service is available to all businesses in Ireland at a reasonable cost.
At present, there are 41 local Chambers in Ireland that are legally approved to authorise EU certificates and Arab certificates of origin.
Why do you need export documentation?
A certificate of origin is a document that proves the place of growth, production and manufacture of goods and is required by most countries to:
Meet customs requirements in the importing state;
Show evidence of proof of origin to claim preferential rates;
Meet ‘quota’ requirements imposed by the importing country;
Comply with banking requirement (when payment is by letter of credit)
