Enabling smooth cross-border trade and commerce
The Chamber issues a variety of documents to enable smooth cross-border trade and commerce. The following documents are available from the Gibraltar Chamber Of Commerce:
- CERTIFICATION OF ORIGIN
- CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION
- ATA CARNETS
- DOCUMENT CERTIFICATION
- SIGNATURE CERTIFICATION
A Certificate of Origin is required by most countries to establish proof of origin of the goods being imported. Certificates issued with the Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce seal, meet the requirements of most overseas government agencies and commercial entities. The document has a provision to state the total value of the items in question, normally stated with an exact or approximate value. Where this is not relevant the applicant can mark the certificate NVD (No Value Declared) although this will be the responsibility of the applicant. What we need to be able to issue a Certificate of Origin is a commercial invoice, a statutory declaration signed by a notary public registered in Gibraltar and a copy of the cargo manifest (if available).
Certificate of Registration or Status This service is provided on the basis that sufficient evidence in support of certification is supplied by the applicant e.g. export licence, registration of company, certificate of incorporation etc.
The ATA Carnet is an international customs document that permits duty-free and tax-free temporary import of goods for up to one year. The Chamber Of Commerce is the only body in Gibraltar to issue ATA Carnets allowing temporary export of goods into certain foreign countries. ATA Carnets cover: - commercial samples; - professional equipment; - goods for presentations or use at trade fairs, shows, exhibitions and the like. Processing for each of these documents varies but they can usually be processed within 1 working day once all the information has been received.
This service is provided on the basis that sufficient evidence in support of certification is supplied by the applicant e.g. export license, registration of company, etc.
Signature Certification This service is provided on the basis that sufficient evidence in support of the signatory is supplied by the applicant e.g. registration of company, proof of employment etc.
