How we can help:



UK Certificates of Origin

What are UK Certificates of Origin?

The UK Certificate of Origin is a commercial or customs clearance document that is required in some countries to evidence the origin of the goods being exported. In essence, this is a declaration that the goods you are exporting are obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. This is an important document because customs officials around the world look at the origin of the goods when they determine the duty to be applied to them. As a Chamber, we can process your Certificate of Origin applications, effectively attesting as to the origin of the goods in question.


How do I apply for a UK Certificate of Origin?
  1. Complete Formal Undertaking
    In order to obtain certified documents, it is necessary for us to hold your signature on file. This is done in the form of a Formal Undertaking, which must be completed and signed by the proprietor, director, partner, or company secretary of your business and returned to the Chamber in original form by post or over the counter. Please note, an update of your company's Formal Undertaking is required on an annual basis. Click here to download a Formal Undertaking document.

Arab-British Certificates of Origin

What are Arab-British Certificates of Origin?
If you are exporting goods to countries that are in the Arab League States, you may be asked to provide an Arab-British Certificate of Origin. Similar to the UK Certificate of Origin, an Arab-British Certificate of Origin is a customs clearance document that is required in some countries in order to evidence the origin of the goods being exported and may also be requested by the importing company. The only authorising body that can officiate this document is the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce, which is based in London. However, as a Chamber, we can facilitate the application process with the Arab-British Chamber on your behalf.
