Non-Preferential Certificate of Origin

PCCC is authorised by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry to issue and endorse Certificate of Origin (CO).

A Non-Preferential Certificate of Origin (NPCO) is a certificate that helps to identify the origin of the goods for international shipments. Certain countries may entirely bar shipments from certain other countries. In select countries, a notarized certificate of the country of origin may significantly lower the taxes levied.

Certain nations require a signed statement as to the origin of the export item. Such certificates are usually obtained through a semi-official organization such as a local Chamber of Commerce. A certificate may be required even though the commercial invoice contains the information.

Product which meets rules of origin:

  • Manufactured in Malaysia and used 100% local materials; or
  • Manufactured in Malaysia through transformation process which alters tariff code classification at six (6) digit level; or
  • Contains at least 25% local materials.
