SGS AND THE SURREY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE STREAMLINE THE EXPORT PROCESS
SGS is working with the Surrey Chamber of Commerce on a pilot project to introduce certificate of conformity referrals in e-z cert, which will assist in simplifying the export process.
E-z cert was developed in partnership with the British Chambers of Commerce.  It is the first and original certificate of origin online.  Throughout the years the service has been improved allowing users to get started quickly and give them a simplified process for applying for certified documents.
 On 4th October, a new function was added to e-z cert allowing users to check whether a certificate of conformity is required for their goods when they are applying for a certificate of origin for exports to any of the following destinations:
 
  • Algeria  
  • Burundi
  • Cameroon
  • Egypt
  • Ethiopia
  • Gabon
  • Ivory Coast
  • Kenya
  • Kuwait
  • Nigeria
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Tanzania
  • Uganda
  • Zanzibar
At the end of the application process for certificates of origin, a new window will appear and advise the applicant that a certificate of conformity may be required for the shipment. The user will then be able to submit an enquiry to SGS who will advise if a conformity certificate is needed and direct users to the SGS Exporter Portal to apply if needed.
This new system will allow Surrey Chamber of Commerce customers to know their conformity requirements and help prevent delays in the shipment of goods.
