We can help with information on export regulations and custom requirements. The Chamber is licensed to issue export documentation certification.


What is a certificate of origin?

A Certificate of Origin is a document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained or produced or manufactured or processed in a particular country (country of origin). Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all. Certificates of Origin are intended solely to prove the origin of goods in order to satisfy customs or trade requirements.


We issue:

  • EU Certificates of Origin
  • Arab-Irish Certificates
    for use when goods are being shipped to any of the 19 Arab League countries
    (Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen).
  • Certificates for India, China and the Philippines


Online Certs

In conjunction with essCert, the Chamber offers a free online facility for processing both EU and Arab-Irish Certificates of Origin and related documents. After purchasing the certificates as normal, you may print out Certificates of Origin bearing the County Kildare Chamber stamp, negating the need to courier or present your certificates at the Chamber for stamping.

We can also help with information on export regulations and custom requirements. Use our network of contacts both nationally and internationally to help your business expand into new markets.


Please note, the Chamber is a small team & requires a 48hr turnaround time for approval of certs/ posting of blank certs. While allowances can be made, this is not always possible.
