Certificates of Origin

Are you involved in the import/export business?
Does your business ship products overseas?
The Greater Mount Airy provides a service to our members who do business in other countries with a document called a Certificate of Origin. Some foreign countries (but not all) require a document, signed by the Chamber of Commerce, that verifies that the product being shipped originated in the USA. The Chamber provides this service, free of charge, to our members who need it. Questions or requests for
certificates of origin can be directed to Chamber President and CEO Randy Collins, via email: randy@mtairyncchamber.org or by phone 336-786-6116 ext. 203.
