The Definatin of Certificate of Hong Kong Origin

The objective of the origin certification system in Hong Kong is to facilitate export of Hong Kong products to external markets.  The system establishes the origin of Hong Kong exports in order to meet the requirements of overseas importing authorities.
The Hong Kong origin system is protected by law. The Export (Certificates of Origin) Regulations of the Import and Export Ordinance (Cap. 60) empower the Director-General of Trade and Industry to implement the certificate of origin system. Penalties for certificate of origin offences are also introduced.
The Protection of Non-government Certificates of Origin Ordinance (Cap. 324) authorises certain Government Approved Certification Organizations (GACOs) to issue Certificates of Origin.  These Certificates of Origin have the same legal status as those issued by the Trade and Industry Department.

The Purpose of Certificate of Hong Kong Origin
The purpose of obtaining a certificate of origin (co) is generally to obtain approval from the customs of the importing country for the entry of the goods and to meet the requirements of the importer.

The Types of Certificate of Hong Kong Origin
