Certificates of Origin
A Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document that certifies that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. They also serve as a declaration by the exporter.
The Chamber issues COs Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.
- Please note that Chamber offices are closed on major holidays as well as the entire Christmas week. It is always a good idea to call ahead (505-764-3736) to ensure there is a staff member available to help you.
- Cost: $30 for Investors and $40 for non-Investors
- Please print and fill out these forms before you come.

Exporting is essential to the health of the U.S. economy. Exports support over 11 million jobs in the United States, which pay 15% more than the U.S. average, and international sales have contributed to nearly 30% of domestic economic growth in recent years. But this success is not limited to large corporations; the number of American businesses sending their goods and services overseas has tripled since 1990, with a full two-thirds of that boom coming from companies with fewer than 20 employees. It’s become a necessity for any business to export, and those that don’t are 9% more likely to fail in any given year than comparable firms that do.
