Export documentation

Save time and money when exporting your goods outside the UK by using ExportCert, the Chambers’ online application process for completing European Certificates of Origin, Arab Certificates of Origin for both certification and legalisation and EUR1s for certain countries.

Many applications are currently approved within an hour of being submitted, and with simple screens and online applications that look just like the real thing, submission can be made in minutes. There is also the facility for users to attach additional documents in support of their application, while other documents can also have signatures attested.

To find out more please contact the Export Team on 01223 237414 or visit www.ExportCert.co.uk.

These Certificates are normally required for shipments to any of the following Arab League States:
Algeria, Bahrain, Iraq, Djibouti, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, UAE and Yemen.

Some importers in these territories have special arrangements with their own customs authorities whereby European Certificates can be used instead of the Arab. We encourage you to double check which type of certificate your customer requires. If an Arab Certificate of Origin is requested, this document may need to be legalised by the relevant Embassy.

Please call our office on 01223 237414 to obtain a quote for your documents and find out any special documentation requirements. You should allow two-three weeks for the return of legalised documents.

The Chamber offers a comprehensive ATA Carnet service, in conjunction with Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, processing and even preparing the documents on your behalf.

An ATA Carnet is an internationally recognised booklet of vouchers which replace the usual Customs declarations for the temporary movement of goods. It avoids the need to provide securities for Customs duty and simplifies the formalities for goods temporarily exported or imported. The ATA Carnet is valid for a maximum of one year from issue and may be used for temporary importation of most goods as long as they are to be re-exported without having undergone any change.

To find out more please contact the Export Team on 01223 237414 or email enquiries@cambscci.co.uk.

Here you will find a number of forms and documents available to download free of charge to assist you with your export documentation. Don’t forget, our team of international trade experts are always willing to answer any queries and can be contacted on 01223 237414.

Support for Exporters

As well as processing your export documentation, both in person and online, we also facilitate opportunities to develop your knowledge of export and import procedures and requirements and investigate potential new marketplaces.

The Chamber offer regular training courses aimed to provide the knowledge to assist with your international trade activities. You will receive detailed notes to take away to build-up a toolkit of reference information.

Our programme of courses are accredited by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and delivered by Chamber member Chadwick Export Services Ltd. Each course includes revision exercises and an assessment based on the training received during the day. These assessments will be marked and candidates achieving a pass or merit will receive a uniquely numbered certificate in each area. Delegates that choose to complete, and pass, six courses will receive the nationally recognised Foundation Award in International Trade.

Courses can also be tailored to meet your company’s specific requirements. For more information please contact us on 01223 237414 or email Rose Griffiths.

Chamber membership offers opportunities to become involved with our International Sector which brings together like-minded individuals with a specific interest in international trade. As well as presenting an opportunity to network and share ideas with professionals with similar areas of expertise, members of the committee draw upon their experience and knowledge to instigate specialist events and seminars that bring in market experts from around the globe.
