Certificate of Origin

Many states within the U.S. have quarantines to prevent damaging pests associated with agricultural commodities from entering their state. A certificate of origin verifies where a shipment originates. These certificates may apply to agricultural commodities or agricultural equipment such as harvesters, swathers and other types of farm equipment. The most likely reason you may need a certificate of origin is to move agricultural commodities or farm equipment to California through a border inspection station.
