In the afternoon from 2:00-4:00pm, the Certificates of Origin training will address the need for consistent processing across all Chambers of Commerce. Attendees will learn how to determine if what you are certifying is legal and abiding by US export regulations, the liabilities involved with processing certificates, and how to respond if you are asked to certify other documents. Certificates of Origin are one of the most common commercial documents that are required for an international transaction. Failure of the exporter to provide the correct certificates to a buyer can cause delays in clearance, storage charges and even fines and penalties. Chambers of Commerce are the trusted issuing party authorized to sign Certificates of Origin. In that capacity, they must assure that they are in compliance with international regulations.
Cost: $25 per person
