BGMEA empowered to issue COO certificates

Mar '10
Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), has been authorized by the government for issuing Country of Origin (COO) certificates to apparel exporters.

This has been done to aid the apparel exporters, to cut down on the time for shipment, thereby speeding up the export process.

At present, those COO certificates which mark where the products are manufactured are being issued by the government-owned Export Promotion Bureau (EPB), which consumes long time in going through the process which is not in interest of the exporters.

The government is also considering Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BKMEA, to issue those certificates.

It has been officially announced that, as BGMEA has completed all the formalities as laid down by Commerce Ministry, it will soon be authorised to issue the COO certificates.

By means of such empowerment initiatives, trade bodies have been prioritized by the ministry, but with the stipulation that anybody taking wrongful advantage of such power, will be penalized.

EPB takes around two to three days to issue the certificate due to which the garment exporters were finding it difficult to deliver the goods within the lead time specified the buyers.

On account of a long lead time many buyers avoided trade with Bangladesh, but in recent times this has changed as the lead time for transmitting the products by sea formerly was 120 days has now been reduced to 90 days.

According to BGMEA if they fail to transmit the products by sea within lead time, then they are required to transmit the same by air, which is very expensive.

EPB is to start printing and issuing the certificates, shortly, where after, the COO certificates will be issued to the exporters within a day, as a separate desk with committed officials is to be set up for the purpose.

In the times when, in order to avoid any sort of difficulties, most of the countries and buyers are now demanding such certificates, governments' move is being acclaimed by experts.
