Many countries, in the Middle East in particular, require that trade documents must be certified by a competent Chamber of Commerce to ensure their custodian’s legitimacy before they can be accepted as valid.
The Chamber is an internationally recognized organization that has been providing certification of documents (COD) services since 1920. Our certification enhances document credibility and mutual trust.
The Chamber’s certification service is trusted by Customs Administrations, Consulates, Banks and Traders around the world.
Each certificate issued includes a unique QR code, which enables recipients to verify the authenticity of documents instantly via their smartphones. It significantly shortens the time spent for customs clearance when certificates need to be authenticated.
