DOCUMENTATION & CERTIFICATION SERVICES


The export documentation process sometimes requires that documents be authenticated (certified) by the Chamber of Commerce.

You will know if documents need certification by the Chamber from details on your Letter of Credit or from instructions received from the importer. Be sure to check the details you have received carefully or discuss directly with the importer to ensure you meet requirements correctly the first time.

As a guideline, certification is often required if you are exporting to some Middle Eastern or Latin American countries, if you are exporting particular foodstuffs and related products, if a developing country has a special concession arrangement, or if New Zealand has a free trade or bilateral agreement with the country to which you are exporting.

Indemnity Form
Before any Certificates can be issued, we require you to complete and return the Indemnity Form


Export documents

The right documentation is a critical part of international trade facilitating the successful movement of goods and receipt of payment. 

It is important to investigate the documentation required for your transaction as the type of documents varies depending on the country you are doing business with, their government & port agencies.


CERTIFICATES OF ORIGIN

‘Shipment specific’ documents certifying the place of growth, production or manufacture of goods exported from New Zealand. They may be requested by a consignee for customs clearance, or as a stipulation of a Letter of Credit. New Zealand exporters commonly require:

  • Certificate of New Zealand Origin
  • Certificate of Foreign Origin
  • China – New Zealand Free Trade Agreement Certificate of Origin (China – NZFTA)
  • ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement Certificate of Origin (AANZFTA)
  • Form A – Non-specific Certificate of Preference

CERTIFICATE OF FREE SALE / CERTIFICATE OF MANUFACTURE

These forms seek assurances from a governmental agency that the associated products offered for entry into their country comply with the requirements of the New Zealand laws of distribution in our domestic market.

These certificates can also be referred to as “Certificate of Export”, or “Certificate of Foreign Governments”.
