New procedures for the issuance of Certificates of Origin, legalization of signatures and certification of export documents from the Netherlands.
January 31, 2014

From January 20th, 2014 the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce and Industry will modernize their digital system for the issuance of Certificates of Origin, the legalization of signatures and the certification of documents.

With the modernized application the exporters will have from that date on the possibility to print all above-mentioned

documents on their own premises including the stamp and signature of the Chamber of Commerce.

The documents with a printed stamp and signature have the same lay-out and appearance as the manually issued

documents.

The printed documents meet the high quality standards set by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). They contain the ICC quality label and a unique reference number, whereby all authorities can verify the authenticity of the documents 24/7 online through the following website http://certificates.iccwbo.org/ In addition, examples of the export documents concerned, such as a certificate of origin, a document with a legalized signature and a document which is certified by the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce and Industry can be viewed on our website www.kvk.nl/documenten  for reference from January 20th 2014 onwards.

The use of export documents with printed stamps and signatures has already been adopted in many other countries, such as Belgium, the United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom, Singapore and Kenya. By implementing the modernized system the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce joins international developments. The modernized system also provides significant benefits by reducing the administrative burden to exporters.

 

Further developments in the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce:

 

On January 1st 2014 the twelve regional Chambers of Commerce and Industry in the Netherlands merged into one new national independent organization, named: “Kamer van Koophandel”, The Netherlands Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Exporters can obtain export documents digitally or by mail at the four back offices at Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Arnhem and Eindhoven. All documents will mention one of the above-mentioned cities or Utrecht as place of issue.

The Netherlands Chamber of Commerce and Industry, also on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the

Netherlands, kindly request that you to take note of the above developments so that the import of goods from the Netherlands into your country will continue as smoothly as possible.

If you require any additional information, we are at your disposal.
