Certificate of Origin Survey 2013 lunched by ICCI WCF

February 6, 2013 | By More

The ICC World Chambers Federation (WCF) has launched a new survey to get a global picture of how Chambers of Commerce & Industry issue millions of Certificate of Origin (COs) used by exporters every year.

The 2013 International Certificates of Origin Survey and the global map of Certificate of Origin activities will provide WCF’s drive to harmonize the hugely varied Certificate of Origin issuing procedures of Chambers of Commerce worldwide.

Until the launch of the International Certificate of Origin Survey in 2003, there had been no global tracking undertaken to understand the volume, scope and critical issues for organizations undertaking Certificate of Origin issuance.

The survey is important for mapping and monitoring trends and issues, and helping WCF in its advocacy work and assistance to chambers.

Certificate of Origin standards are reassuring for world trade

Last year, ICC WCF launched its International Certificate of Origin Accreditation Chain, with an easily recognizable international quality label, to reassure business, traders, banks and customs administrations that participating chambers have issued Certificate of Origin according to internationally accepted best practices.

Another contribution to harmonization is WCF’s International Certificate of Origin Guidelines, a free copy of which will be awarded to one participant of the current survey.

All chambers of commerce are invited to take the survey

Accessible online from 4 February to 30 April, the survey takes only a few minutes to complete and is adaptable to all chambers, whatever their CO-issuing activities. All responses will be kept confidential. Chambers are all invited to complete the survey by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/s/2013InternationalCOSurvey.
