TYPES OF SERVICES

Certificate of Origin

Certificate of Origin (CO), known as non-preferential CO, is a trade document that can be used to attest the origin of goods and may be requested by Customs Administrations, Importers, Freight Forwarders or Banks for clearance of Letters of Credit.

With the Singapore Government’s strong commitment in building a global innovation hub and SCCCI’s commitment to drive the digitalisation of trade, SCCCI would be implementing blockchain-based eCO that offers higher security, flexibility and productivity in processing your trade-related documents.

Traders may submit their applications manually or electronically. For electronic CO (eCO), traders can submit via the SCCCI online portal (www.certoforigin.com) at their own premises which helps to save on time, logistics and moreover greatly improve on efficiency.

With effect from 1 July 2019, all eCO applications will be leveraging on the blockchain-based platform, Open Trade Blockchain (OTB), that drives efficiency and provides real-review review. With OTB, traders can check the authenticity of their COs by the unique QR code or the URL provided.

For manual CO application submission, traders are to submit their completed Pink Form together with the supporting documents to the SCCCI CO Office.
