Certificates of Origin / exporting to israel
The United States and Israel have decided to eliminate the requirement for a certificate of origin (a.k.a. the green form) under the Agreement on the Establishment of a Free Trade Area between the United States and Israel (FTA).
The agreement needs to be confirmed by the Israeli Parliament. This could take months. Until then, U.S> exporters are still required to submit the green form Certificate of Origin.
In addition to the official US Certificates of Origin (COO) for Exports to Israel under the US-Israel Free Trade Agreement (FTA), we provide:
- Assistance completing the COO
- Research export compliance with the FTA, if necessary
- Chamber stamp when required by the FTA
One Certificate of Origin is required per export shipment. There is a $25 flat fee for Certificates of Origin and the aforementioned services for individual members and non-members. There is no charge for business members.
