Applying – Export Documentation

From April 2023 all certificates requiring certification must be completed using the electronic software (eCERT) and manual certificates will no longer be accepted. Click here for full guidance.



This is the online platform used for applying for export documents, this platform allows your export documents to be completed by yourselves, checked by our BCC accredited staff, and certified without you having to leave your desk.

Use of the eCERT system allows two submission methods:


     • Express: this service uses electronic stamps and signatures, which means your certificates and documents can be returned to you certified directly via the Ecert system. You will then be able to print the documents yourself using your own printing facilities.


     • Standard: this service requires us to print your certificates and documents on your behalf and return the completed documents to you via your agreed method. Sometimes, due to country restrictions, some applications need to be stamped and signed manually and will require that you use the Standard service for your application.

On some occasions for the authorisation of commercial documents such as invoices, where ink certification is required, we will request for an ink signed copy of the document to be posted to our office address below for certification.
