Today, Accredited Chambers of Commerce in every nation and region of the UK are trusted to help British goods reach customers overseas. By certifying the origin of goods, Chambers help to reduce the possibility that overseas customs authorities stop British shipments – helping to ensure the smooth passage of UK goods across international borders. Last year alone, more than 600,000 shipments were supported in this way.

Supporting trade locally, nationally, and globally remains a key mission for every Accredited Chamber of Commerce. We are proud of our network of more than 350 qualified specialists in the Chamber Network, who are on hand every working day to help business and international trade to flourish. Every  Accredited Chamber must provide local businesses with access to a range of services to support that aim.

In every city, town and county, Accredited Chambers of Commerce provide crucial first-stop support for businesses trading internationally. Across our network, we receive over 1,500 enquiries every week from businesses just seeking advice.

Thanks to Chambers’ deep local roots, instantly-recognisable brand and not-for-dividend status, we remain a crucial and trusted third party for businesses who want to expand overseas or who want to bring components and goods into the UK.
