Note: The National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce is the ONLY business entity in the United States that is officially recognized and sanctioned by the League of Arab States and the General Union of Arab Chambers of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture.

A certificate of origin (often abbreviated to C/O, COO or CoO) is a document used in international trade. It is completed by the exporter and certified by an recognized issuing body (Example: Local Chamber of Commerce, State, Federal Government, or Company Representative), attesting that the goods in a particular export shipment have been produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. The origin of the product does not refer to the country where the goods were shipped from but to the country where they were made. In the event the products were manufactured in two or more countries, origin is obtained in the country where the last substantial economically justified working or processing is carried out.
When used in foreign trade, a commercial invoice is a customs document. It is used as a customs declaration provided by the person or corporation that is exporting an item across international borders. Although there is no standard format, the document must include a few specific pieces of information such as the parties involved in the shipping transaction, the goods being transported, the country of manufacture, and the Harmonized System codes for those goods. A commercial invoice must often include a statement certifying that the invoice is true, and a signature.
