Online Export Documents

Throughout the world, almost all countries require regulatory or shipping certificates from the country that is shipping the goods. The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce issues the following documents quickly and securely via its online platform:

Certificate of Free Sale (CFS)
Also known as Certificate for Foreign Government or Certificate for Export, this document provides evidence that goods are sold legally, without restrictions, in the open market and approved by authorities of the country of origin, in this case, the United States.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
This certificate is issued to document adherence to good manufacturing practices as outlined by the United States Federal and Drug Administration (FDA), the State Health Department, and other standards.

Certificate of Origin (COO or CO)
Also known as Declaration of Origin, is a document widely used in International Trade transactions stating that a product meets the criteria to be considered as originating in a particular country. It includes details about the product, destination, and country of export.

The Chamber issues certificates to U.S.-based companies that can prove that they are a U.S. company by providing the correct verification documents. These documents are a requirement to get your product registered with the foreign country and to allow the entry of your goods through Customs. Through its partnership with Fast Track Global Services and its online platform Swiftdox, the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce can also get your certificates legalized and apostilled online with an expedited timeline.

Accreditation from the International Chamber of Commerce

In April 2022, the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, one of the oldest Chambers in the nation, received the internationally acclaimed accreditation from the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce is at the forefront of working with governments, chambers, and private companies around the world to digitize trade documents so that Florida companies can clear customs in an expedited manner. This accreditation will serve more than 57,000 exporters in the state of Florida as they continue to meet the highest standards set by the ICC with their documentation certificates.

Established by ICC World Chambers Federation (WCF) in 2012, the ICC Certificate of Origin (CO) Chain now comprises 775 chambers from 31 countries. Together, this network issues more than 8.5 million Certificates of Origin a year with the trusted and official ICC WCF Label, adhering to the most stringent and universal certification standards – outlined in the ICC WCF International CO Guidelines – to issue trade documents in their respective countries.

Through the creation of the ICC CO Chain, ICC WCF enables chamber leaders in promoting the use of universal certification standards and processes to better serve the global trading community. Being a member provides added confidence that chamber competency and credibility as trusted third parties in the issuance of COs remains up to date.

Approval of the new members was made during a meeting of the ICC World Chambers Federation (WCF) International CO Council held at the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce on June 1st, 2022, which brought together 40 CO experts from over 27 countries.
