The purpose of a Legalization or Certification is to ratify a document by the Chamber of Commerce. Often a document must also be ratified by a consulate or embassy. The latter can only happen after the document has passed the Chamber of Commerce.
The application of this document may be of use to the importing party, because on the basis of this document they can obtain an exemption or discount on the import duties.
If you only need one or a few Legalisations per year, EDO Essentials is the method to get the documents. Log in and choose one of the affiliated service providers. The service provider will require an authorization from you. This enables the service provider to request the document from the Chamber of Commerce on your behalf. You then submit the data and required documents digitally.
Would you rather that the service provider takes care of filling in and requesting your document? Then choose EDO Essentials (plus).
You can apply for a Certification with ExportDocuments Online with an EDO Business or EDO Business Light license. Requesting a Certification with EDO Essentials is not possible.
If you need multiple Legalizations or other documents per year, EDO Business Light (12 - 35 documents) or EDO Business (35 or more documents) is meant for you.
