Export Documentation

Certificates of Origin – This is a document that can be used to satisfy your buyers that the products exported are wholly obtained or produced or manufactured in a particular country. Certain exports need export documents to be certified (authenticated) by a Chamber of Commerce.  The Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce provides a certification service for Certificates of Origin (both manual and electronic) and other trade documents, including Certificates of Manufacture and Certificates of Free Sale. This is available Monday to Friday, 9-3 pm.
