Certificate of Origin


Certificate of Origin

Why is a Certificate of Origin Needed?

A Certificate of Origin (COO) is an important international trade document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. COOs also constitute a declaration by the exporter.

The Shakopee Chamber of Commerce has the authority to sign and stamp Certificates of Origin.


  • Shakopee Chamber Members = No charge 
(with an Advocate Level membership* or above)
  • Non-Chamber Members = $250 per certificate

Please allow as much lead time as possible between getting your COO signed/stamped and the date your order will be exported. Call 952-445-1660 to verify office hours and staff availability before bringing your COO to the Chamber.

PLEASE NOTE: No Certificate of Origin will be signed and stamped unless the Chamber President has previously completed a site visit at the business presenting the COO. Contact the Chamber office to schedule a site visit.

* The annual investment for an Advocate Level membership is $750.
