Globinar Electronic Certificates of Origin

Globinars are always free for members - just login.

Our globalized world is one of rapid changes and global opportunities are changing right before our eyes. For instance virtual documents are now considered even more important than ever, and that's part of the new reality for business operations.

Certificates of Origin (CO) are part of the trade changes we're seeing in regional trade agreements like USMCA, and now international businesses can request this online without the need to visit a local chamber.  

There are now available at Global Chamber!

Join us to learn more! Zoom in from anywhere on June 4th... at 8am US Pacific, 11am US Eastern
