How to Issue Certificate of Origin (CoO), FTA, PTA by Filing Online Application

Updated: Nov 19, 2021

Are you facing the problem of registering and logging on to the Common Digital Platform for issuance of Certificate of Origin including FTA/PTA? I am trying to solve this problem through this article.




Certificate of Origin (CoO) is an instrument which establishes evidence o­n origin of goods imported into any country.These certificates are essential for exporters to prove where their goods come from and therefore stake their claim to whatever benefits goods of Indian origin may be eligible for in the country of exports. Certificate of Origin (CoO) is an autonomous commercial policy instrument, directed to promote and sustain mutual trade and to develop economic co-operation among countries. It is based on the most classical commercial policy instrument of all: the tariff.


With reference to the following Trade Notices issued by Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT):

  1. 34/2015-20 dated 19.09.2019

  2. 41/2019-20 dated 12.12.2019

  3. 53/2019-20 dated 02.03.2020

  4. 01/2020-2021 dated 07.04.2020


A new online platform for issuance of Preferential Certificate of Origin (CoC) has been developed by DGFT, which is a single-point of access for Certificates of Origin under all trade agreements. This is designed to facilitate exporters through a secure, electronic, paperless issuance of CoO.


This article enlightens upon the following topics.

Types of Certificate of Origin


There are two categories of Certificate of Origin:

  1. Preferential and

  2. Non-Preferential


Preferential

Preferential arrangement/scheme under which India is receiving tariff preferences for its exports are:


  • Generalised System of Preferences (GSP)

  • Global System of Trade Preferences (GSTP)

  • SAARC Preferential Trading Agreement (SAPTA)

  • Asia-Pacific Trade Agreement (APTA)

  • India-Sri Lanka Free Trade Agreement (ISLFTA)

  • Indo-Thailand Free Trade Agreement

  • India-Malaysia Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (IMCECA)

  • India-Korea Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA)

  • India-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IJCEPA)

  • Asean-India Free Trade Agreement

These Preferential arrangements/agreements prescribe Rules of Origin which have to be met for exports to be eligible for tariff preference.


Generalised System of Preferences (GSP)

It is a non-contractual instrument by which industrialized (developed) countries unilaterally and based o­n non-reciprocity extend tariff concessions to developing countries. The generalized schemes of preferences were first put into operation in the year 1971, with the application of the basic principles defined in the generalized system of preferences elaborated within the UNCTAD.


While European Economic Community (now the European Union) was first to grant tariff preferences under GSP, Turkey is the latest entrant to have introduced tariff preferences for goods originating in developing countries wef 1st January 2002. Now, 36 developed countries are offering preferential tariff treatment to the eligible Indian goods through 12 schemes. Each scheme prescribes its own rules and regulations for determining eligibility of a product to preferential tariff treatment. Certificate of origin form A, duly filled in by the exporter and certified by an authorised Governmental Agency is accepted by all countries as evidence of origin for according tariff concessions. Ministry of Commerce and Industry is the administrative Ministry for such authorization.
