According to the terms of the CoO, exporters for every export of Rs 100 are required to pay 12 paisa to the organization issuing CoO.

Export Council of Nepal, Nepal Carpet Exporters' Association, Garment Association of Nepal, Federation of Handicrafts Association of Nepal, Nepal Freight Forwarders' Association, Federation of Customs Agents, Nepal Handmade Paper Association, Gold and Silver Dealers' Association, Nepal Pashmina Industries' Association, Lalitpur Handicraft Association and Nepal Association of Custom Agents, are the Nepali exporters that have urged the government to render CoO as non-obligatory.
