Arab-British Certificate of Origin

The Chamber’s Export Documentation service is an important asset to Arab-British trade. With our valuable links to the Arab British Chamber of Commerce, we are ideally positioned to assist exporters entering the substantial and sophisticated Arab market, encompassing all your certification and legalisation needs.

Arab-British Certificates of Origin Forms are held by Surrey Chambers of Commerce and can be purchased by contacting the International Trade Team on 01483 735549. The cost of certification/legalisation varies considerably from country to country therefore it is wise to discuss your requirements and obtain a quotation from the International Trade Team.

It is essential, when exporting to the Arab world, to present the correct documentation. Errors are very expensive, leading to costly delays in payment and in clearing the goods, and even leading to non-payment.

The member governments of the League of Arab States have entrusted the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce with the task of standardising and co-ordinating the preparation and submission of commercial documents, for the export of goods from the U.K. to member states of the Arab League.

The Arab-British Chamber of Commerce, with the collaboration of the Simpler Trade Procedures Board (SITPRO), has designed a unique, bilingual (English/Arabic) Certificate of Origin. The Arab-British Certificate of Origin conforms to international regulations and is accepted by all governments concerned.

The Arab British Chamber foster close links with the Arab Embassies in London. When Embassy requirements are amended, they are relayed via the Arab-British Chamber immediately to us.
