Leading industry chamber of Indian exporters FIEO has started the facility of the digital certificate of origin (both non-preferential and preferential, for which it is authorized) using FIEO’s online CoO system. The facility will reduce the transaction time and cost of exporters also.
The facility is expected to help exporters in sending CoO electronically to buyers to help them clear the consignment particularly as most of the courier companies are not operating in the country. Many of the countries are now accepting scanned /digital copies of the Certificate of Origins.
FIEO is also updating information relating to Covid-19, having bearing on exports/imports, at its website under the banner “Updates on Covid-19”. It has urged exporters/importers to access it to update themselves on a real-time basis.
