International Trade 4

Other Documents include International Import Certificates, Company Trading Status Certificates and Force Majeure Letters. 

International Import Certificate

An International Import Certificate (IIC) is an end-use assurance document that allows a foreign supplier to obtain the approvals it needs from its own government to allow the export of goods or technology to the United Kingdom. It is a normal practice for a UK individual or company aiming to import controlled goods to apply for an IIC at the request of the Licensing Authority of the country of export. 

To apply for a certificate, email to obtain a Blank Original IIC form. Then complete the form (hand written document is not allowed). If the person signing the form is not a Director or a Company Secretary, then the company will need to provide us with an Authorised Signatory Letter. Please enclose copy of the Purchase order, Contract or Invoice and payment. You can apply over the counter or by post.

Company Trading Status Certificate

This certificate confirms that your company is a legally trading company and provide a brief description of the company’s activities. Content of the certificate can be tailored to suit your requirements ie we can show company directors, shareholders etc. These are often used in international tenders.

To apply for a certificate, please email a request for Trading Status Certificate, including sample of the wording required. We will then produce the certificate.

Force Majeure Letter

These are letters attesting the existence of force majeure circumstances ie circumstances beyond the control of the applicant such as fire, flood, industrial dispute, global pandemic etc. Please note that we can only certify factual details that can be evidenced. We cannot comment as to whether or not Force Majeure applies or argue such claims on behalf of the applicant. It is the responsibility of the applicant to claim Force Majeure and the issuing body’s role is to provide a certificate in support of such claim. 

To apply for a letter, please email the details of the force majeure circumstances and the scope of non-fulfilment of contractual obligations due to these circumstances, signed by the company director. This will need to be backed up by documents by the competent authorities or verifiable sources attesting to the existence of the force majeure circumstances. We will then produce the letter.
