Prior to April 1, 2018, U.S. exporters who wished to qualify for preferential access to the Israeli market needed to use a special green certificate of origin form. That regulation has now changed and instead of providing the green certificate of origin, U.S. exporters must include a new statement that declares that their goods qualify under the U.S.-Israel Free Trade Agreement.
This version of the commercial invoice includes that statement as well as all the standard information that is typically required on a commercial invoice that must accompany an export shipment.
The commercial invoice is the single document that describes the entire export transaction from start to finish. When completed properly, it provides important instructions and information to the buyer, the freight forwarder, U.S. and foreign customs, the import broker, the marine insurance company, and both your bank and the buyer’s bank. Done improperly, it can cause confusion, delays and disagreements.
