Whenever you export out of Thailand to Australia under the Asean FREE trade agreement you must have a current Certificate of Origin (C/O) whereby the Ministry of Commerce has authorized the Dept of Foreign Trade or DFT to provide such a certification service for goods going to Australia. You cannot use a Chamber of Commerce Cert of origin.You also need a packing list of what youre sending; invoices, bills of lading (B/L), price list, certificate of free sales, and other documents as requested. To Australia however you must have the CO from the Dept of Foreign Affairs (DFT) otherwise your goods will be sent back. The Chamber of Commerce is a private organisation & not government so they do not have the means to inspect the origin of the goods you buy. All factories sending via DFT must be affiliated to the DFT and inspected to prevent copies being made by these factories.

CLEARING YOUR GOODS BACK HOME:
Sometimes it is easier to have a clearing agent to clear your goods and pay the duties for your goods coming in. They will even truck to your door but they will handle your full shipment. They will save you the hassles etc of getting the goods direct to you thru customs and Agriculture depts. You can contact these agents in your country but have a look at our agents, See our worldwide customs clearing agents [ Customs clearing agents ]. YOUR OWN CLEARING AGENT: We can NOTIFY your clearing agent if you nominate one to accept your goods at the destination but remember our job is finished when we load the goods on board FOB or to the port of entry. It is then your responsibility once it reaches the destination port on the BIL (Bill of lading)
