ExportCert - Electronic Document Processing
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.

Arab Certificates of Origin
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.
