Step 5 - SADC Certificate of Origin

The SADC Certificate of Origin is a document issued by MCCCI stating that the product being exported was indeed produced in a SADC country.  As with the Phytosanitary Certificate, the SADC Certificate of Origin is not legally required to export but necessary in order to apply for the Customs and Excise Declaration Form.
