Can you rely on your Certificate of Origin?

Do your goods or payments ever get held up because of a query with the Certificate of Origin?   A query with this document can hold up import, delay your receiving payment, and cause your shipment costs get out of control.  Which is why these documents certified by your local chamber of commerce, are important.

Certificates of Origin, and EUR1 or A.TR documents can all be obtained online using e-z Cert, and your local Chamber of Commerce will certify and return them to you on the same day.  And to add to the security the Certificate of Origin includes a QR code which can be scanned by any mobile phone with a bar code scanner.  So when your goods cross country borders and a Certificate of Origin is examined, a simple scan will give border officials details of the shipment and the issuing body, to prove the document is authentic.

The e-z Cert service is offered by Chambers of Commerce throughout the UK and provides a fast and efficient way to apply for your certified documents,

e-z Cert can be used as a simple manual entry system and the copy application function minimises the amount of data keying you need to do. But don’t forget that if you need a lot of certified documents you can send a file of data from another system to e-z Cert in order to manage your applications without re-keying data you have already created in your order processing, or export documentation system.

If you are an e-z Consign,  GTA Online or GTA Net user, then you can simply click on the “Send to e-z Cert” button to send data to your existing e-z Cert account and manage your applications in the normal way.

If you are not yet using e-z Cert then you can find out about using e-z Cert or go to the e-z Cert web site to register online and start using today.  And don’t forget to ask your chamber about the other certified documents they can issue for you.

    Nice article Penny. Couple of the links (GTA Online and Net I think) go to rather than infinity but they re-direct correctly.

    We don’t currently print QR codes on the EUR1 and A.TR. Do you have any thoughts on whether we should offer this to HMRC as additional security for the documents chambers issue? Or just start doing it? I want to ask but am not sure if it will rock the boat coming from us rather than BCC.
