To Regiser:

Before a company can apply for a Certificate of Origin certain information is required by the Chamber:

  • An Indemnity Form must be completed by the company before the Chamber can provide certification service. The undertaking of indemnification is needed with respect to information provided by the company to the Chamber. The company agrees to abide by standard rules and indemnifies the Chamber against inaccuracy of documents or misleading information. The applicant must be based in the 26 counties and be registered with the Companies Registration Office. The Indemnity Form is available to download.
  • list of authorised signatories for the company on the company's headed paper, (with sample of signature). The signatories will be authorised to sign applications for certificates on behalf of the company: the (pink) application form of the European Certificate of Origin or the blue & green sheets of the Arab-Irish Certificate of Origin and documentation will only be accepted from those on the authorised list.
  • Non-members of Galway Chamber must supply the Chamber with a banker's reference. This must confirm that the company maintains an account with the bank.
