How does it work?
Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce operates a counter service between the hours of 10am - 4pm when documentation will be certified (if correct) while you wait. All documents received through the post will be processed on the same day as received (with the exception of Arab-British Certificates) and posted back to customers the same day.
Lancaster District Chamber of Commerce now offers exporters the facility to electronically submit documents.
Not only can you apply online, but we will check, approve, stamp, and return your documents electronically. Any mistakes or inaccuracies can be corrected immediately. The system saves hours, and even days, for time-pressed exporters.
You can set up your own account in an instant, and our online tutorials and field help feature throughout the site to guide new users. www.e-zcert.com/uk
