Why use Online Certification?
Increase productivity, reduce staff costs
Online certification provides exporters and forwarders with faster processing of documents, giving better service to customers at reduced costs. Agents using the system report significantly reduced times to make documents available with more efficient management of staff, especially at peak times for shipments.
The easy-to-use system automatically navigates users through a series of work-flows required to make online Certificate of Origin applications. This “DIY” system means that your staff will require a minimal amount of training. As a result, staff productivity will be increased, administration and staff training costs will be reduced and the “human error” costs associated with handling applications manually will be removed through automation.
Our Chambers of Commerce-approved Certificate of Origin (COO) creation and certification service is the best way of getting accurate compliant export documents including all COOs; EUR1 (preferential duty), ATR (preferential duty for Turkey), EC (European Community) & Arab. The system rules also ensure AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) compliance so that you maintain the highest service levels for your customers.

How do I get started?
Easy! Complete a Letter of Waiver form, have it notarized by a Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths (MBOT cannot notarize this document), scan and email the Letter of Waiver to us (to set you up faster), and mail us the original (address).
Once you’ve submitted your completed Letter of Waiver, we’ll set you up as a user. You will receive an email with further instructions.
