Certificates of Origin and other documents are certified according to standards set by the International Chamber of Commerce.

JCCI has for decades issued manual certificates of origin. In 2015 we introduced an electronic certificate platform. We have now upgraded to the next generation electronic Certificate of Origin platform: essCert.

essCert,  our service provider, combines the best electronic solutions to offer the world’s most powerful eCO solution. 

The benefits of an Electronic Certificate of Origin are: 

  • It has a QR scanner barcode to enable verification.
  • Verification can also be done on the website
  • Online application at no extra cost.
  • Certificates available in minutes rather than days.
  • You can apply and print at your own desk.
  • Reduced costs - save on travel, courier and postage costs.
  • Increased productivity.

 To take advantage of this new platform, the procedures are as follows: 

  • To register go to  and enter the required fields

  • You will be requested to complete and submit a registration form.
  • essCert will then send you a JCCI Formal Undertaking. On completion return it to together with your CIPC Company Registration form
