Connecting Cumbrian businesses to the world.
The Chamber can simplify the process, ensuring documents are completed correctly to save you time and money.
Cumbria Chamber of Commerce is an accredited issuer of export documentation for both Cumbria and adjacent areas of Scotland and can advise businesses how to access and process the documents they need to get their goods to world markets.
Our export team are here to help you with the regulatory processes governing international trading. We can also offer Chamber members with a significant discount on all international trade documentation.
Which documents can we process for you?
Exporters need to complete an annual formal undertaking, (this is part of the registration process on our documentation portal) and also need to be aware of the standard rules that apply to Certification of International Trade Documents. See form here.
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.
We have arrangements with neighbouring Chambers to process Arab Documents.
