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.
