Foreign Trade Documents

Chambers of Commerce issue foreign trade documents an European Union Certificates of Origin, ATA Carnet and CPD/China-Taiwan Carnet. The documents most frequently certified by the Chamber are invoices, packing and price lists and other certificates. In addition, the Chamber of Commerce makes recommendations for export companies, Full Confidence certificates, Certificate of circumstances and other special certificates.

With confirmation, the Chamber of Commerce verifies the content and existence of a particular document at the time of confirmation. The information contained in the documents shall, at the discretion of the Chamber of Commerce, provide such reports in order to convince the Chamber of Commerce of the accuracy of the information. From 15 February 2021, the new procedure will be followed for business documents requiring the confirmation of a Chamber of Commerce and the legalization of an authority.
