Its a declaration submitted by the exporter confirming that the goods being exported were manufactured or sourced from the exporting country.
In prior years the preparation of a Certificate was a relatively easy task when exporting from Australia to another country. While the format varied considerably, it was quite simply a declaration of where the good were manufactured on the export documentation.
Under the conditions of various Free Trade Agreements however, to be able to claim reduced or concessions on import duties an importer must submit a Certificate of Origin issued by an authorized government or export agency.
If the customs and importing authorities of the importing country do not accept the Certificate, the importation will be delayed and in severe cases entry will be denied. This can be a very costly situation for the importer and may take time to resolve.
To obtain an authorized Certificate of Origin, an exporter is required to be registered with the issuing authority and submit detailed supporting information to facilitate the preparation of the certificate. Fines and legal action can be imposed for false or incorrect declarations.

I noticed a Facebook post last weekend "who owns Kelly & Windsor Australia?" Is it really an Australian owned business?
We are a 100% owned Australian owned and operated business. The ownership of the company is on the pubic records and we extensively use the Australian made and Owned logo under a licence agreement with The Australia Made Campaign.
Despite the challenges of the Covid pandemic, we have maintained full manufacturing and shipping operations since the initial out break. We are actually struggling to met demand for our luxurious Australian Made bedding collections.
We have instigated strict Covid Safe Policies and Practices and are prepared to offer full support to staff who may be effected in these difficult times.
