Applying – Export Documentation

There are several ways to complete the documentation and they vary depending on what documentation is required by your customer.

eCert
The most popular form of applying for export documents is through our electronic system, eCert, which means that your export documents can be checked, approved, stamped and returned without you having to leave your desk and completed within the same day.

This is deemed the quickest and safest method of sending and receiving your documents as you do not need to rely on the post or couriers because you can print it out from the comfort of your own office.
