During this transition into Phase 4 of COVID-19 our office remains open by appointment only.  Because our hours are scaled back we cannot accept appointments for Certificates of Origin, therefore you must register for electronic certificates at this time.  Once we get back to our regular schedule, you will have the opportunity to visit the office for stamps, however we encourage you to continue using the electronic portal as it is the most efficient use of time.

Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce offers online Certificates of Origin through an affiliation with the American World Trade Chamber of Commerce.

A Certificate of Origin is an international trade document attesting that goods in an export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured, or processed in a particular country. Completing your Certificate of Origin online through Lake Zurich Area Chamber helps eliminate the likelihood of errors and reduces the cost. Also, key information is stored, allowing for repeat certificates to be created without the need for repetitive form filling.

Exporters and freight forwarders must register to access the Certificate of Origin program through a dedicated Lake Zurich Area Chamber Web portal. Once the registration form is received, login credentials will be provided by Lake Zurich Area Chamber. Documents will bear the seal of AWTCC, which is registered with customs authorities worldwide.

New users: Print and complete the fillable PDF registration form and email to Claire Slattery to request Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce login credentials.

Registered users: Log in and begin the Certificate of Origin process.

Online document pricing: Lake Zurich Area Chamber members: $25 per document; Non-members: $50 per document
