Cumbria Chamber of Commerce Export Documentation Service

Exporting goods abroad can be a nightmare, especially when export documentation is required and you don’t have a clue where to start or what documentation to complete!

Cumbria Chamber of Commerce can help make the process simple, ensuring the correct paperwork is completely correctly first time round avoiding lengthy delays and saving you money.

So what documents can we process?

EC Certificates of Origin

Importers usually require a Certificate of Origin to meet customs or quota requirements in the importing country, or to comply with banking requirements.

EUR1 Movement Certificates

An EUR1 document can help your buyer in some countries import your goods more cheaply under preference. Preference means that your buyer may pay a lower or nil rate of import duty on your goods.

ATR Certificates

An ATR Certificate is a goods movement certificate used for preferential treatment of goods moved between the European Community and Turkey.

Arab-British Documents

We have arrangements with neighbouring Chambers to process Arab Documents.

We offer all exporters the option of submitting documents electronically, this means documents can be turned around in a matter of minutes.

The e-Cert Express service saves you invaluable time – no more having to rely on posting Certificates of Origin and waiting for them to be processed manually and then posted back to you.

Another benefit of this process is that if any amendments need to be made to a certificate once the document has been checked by Chamber staff – these can be made immediately by you and the document then can be resubmitted within minutes for processing and subsequent electronic return.

A further benefit is that by using this process it cuts out the cost of having to leave the office to use Cumbria Chamber of Commerce’s desk service for those ‘urgent’ documents.

What does it cost?

For EC Certificates of Origin, EUR1's and ATR's our prices are £16 + VAT for members and £25 + VAT for non-members. Arab certification and legalisation costs are available on request. Please see our Price List for further details.

Our Export Training Courses are very competitively priced, with substantial savings for members.
