  • Trade facilitation by the Chamber of Commerce & Global Origin Process

    Multiple manufacturing points worldwide, delivering to various countries. Organizing a high quality global origin process is a tough job... Sounds familiar? 

    We understand your challenges. During this session we would like to provide you with practical guidelines how to optimize your global origin process. In such a way that proof of origin for export documents meets the international standards by the International Chamber of Commerce.

    Trade Facilitation is an important topic for The Chamber of Commerce in The Netherlands as well as the International Chamber of Commerce. During this session Martin van der Weide would like to take the opportunity to hear about the needs and wishes of the business in this matter. Think of reducing administrative burden, standardized & simplified processes etc.

  • Changes in conformity documents Saudi Arabia

    SASO Conformity Assessment, SASO IECEE, Certificates of Origin, SALEEM & SABER... What's the status?

    Exporting to Saudi Arabia or plans for doing so? Please be aware that Saudi Arabia has strict regulations. Imported products need to meet specific product safety requirements, labeling and markings in order to be Customs cleared. Currently there are changes going on regarding Certificates of Conformity as a result of the National Transformation Program 2020. Communication on these changes can be confusing. So how do you keep up with these developments? 

    Our speakers know the latest ins- and outs and will gladly share their knowledge and insights. Staying up-to-date ensures a smooth logistic process with shortest leadtimes.

    During this session, Eddy Postma from SGS, will catch up on the then current status of SASO related matters and the trial period of SALEEM & SABER (digital product safety program & system). He will also address any attention points you should have regarding product compliance in Saudi Arabia. Lonneke Verberk will provide you with practical tips on how to implement these document requirements into your daily processes.

    In this session we use Saudi Arabia as a benchmark for the Middle-East region, because of its regulatory complexity. This session is therefore also interesting for those who export to other countries in the Middle-East, due to similar regulations (e.g. GCC and GSO). 

    The session is open for interaction, so should you have any questions, please feel free to ask them.

  • Short break

  • Brexit & Export documents

    How the Brexit has an impact on your supply chain

    When organizing a supply chain event we cannot ignore Brexit as one of the key topics. The consequences for trade compliance by the Brexit are still not clear. It is a hot topic and there are many unfounded rumors going around. One thing is for sure, things are going to change! During this session we specifically zoom in on the possible changes within Customs compliance and Export documents.

    As the UK is on the top list of exporting countries from the Netherlands, many organizations get impacted by these new regulations.

    What are the possible scenarios? Do you need to expand your customs department with extra professionals? Do you need additional export documents for goods that are shipped to the UK?

    Keeping up with the latest developments is already a challenge. Translating these changes into your practical daily operations is even harder. A great responsibility that rests on your shoulders... Our specialists gladly support you finding the best solution for your situation. Topics that will be discussed are: export declarations, free trade agreement, EUR.1 certificates and more...

    In the coming period we expect more and more Brexit news to be announced. We will of course take this into account in our preparation for the event to make sure you are updated on the latest developments!
