Export Documentation

In these unprecedented and uncertain times there have obviously been a number of changes to the way we do business. One of which that may have affected you is how we process export documentation.

You can find information on the Government website here around moving goods through customs during COVID-19 however your local Chamber of Commerce will still remain the first point of call locally for export documentation. Many of them have changed the way in which they process things in line with new government guidance. Below you’ll find contact pages for your local Chamber to keep up to date with them.

Remember, stay at home, protect our NHS, save lives.
