OAR 735-022-0050
When Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin (MCO) Is Required


A MCO must be submitted with an application for title for a vehicle built by a manufacturer or a reconstructed heavy truck or tractor built using a glider kit.


For vehicles built in stages by two or more manufacturers, an MCO is required from each manufacturer for the portion of the vehicle manufactured.


For reconstructed heavy trucks or tractors rebuilt using a glider kit, the MCO provided must be for the glider kit.


An MCO is not required if the manufactured vehicle or reconstructed vehicle has been titled or registered in any jurisdiction.


DMV may require or accept an MCO in other situations. Example: When a person (other than a manufacturer) builds a vehicle and an MCO is issued for some or all of the major component parts (i.e., frame, chassis, motor).
