Foreign Export Documents

Chambers of Commerce issue companies with foreign trade documents, such as European Union general certificates of origin, ATA carnet customs documents, invoice confirmations, Force Majeure and other special certificates at the request of trading parties and the authorities of the exporting country.

In order to guarantee the reliability of the invoice, the copy of the invoice that is submitted to the Chamber of Commerce for archiving must bear the binding signature of the seller. A signed copy of other documents to be confirmed must also remain with the Chamber of Commerce.

Some countries require legalization and / or validation of documents. Legalization means an act performed by the consulate or other diplomatic mission of the country in question, while confirmation is an act performed by the Chamber of Commerce.

Foreign trade documents can be confirmed at the Häme Chamber of Commerce Mon - Fri 9.00 - 11.30 and 12.30 - 16.00.
