Malta Cham­ber joins In­ter­na­tional Cer­tifi­cate of Ori­gin Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Chain

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

The Malta Cham­ber of Com­merce, En­ter­prise and In­dus­try has be­come the lat­est cham­ber to join the In­ter­na­tional Cer­tifi­cate of Ori­gin Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Chain.

Cre­ated by the In­ter­na­tional Cham­ber of Com­merce’s World Cham­bers Fed­er­a­tion in 2012, the CO Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Chain to­day in­cludes 559 cham­bers from 23 coun­tries.

With its newly es­tab­lished sta­tus, the Malta Cham­ber now ben­e­fits from the use of the in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised CO la­bel. This cer­ti­fied mark as­sures busi­nesses, traders, banks and cus­toms ad­min­is­tra­tions that their COs have been is­sued ac­cord­ing to the most strin­gent and har­monised stan­dards.

Hav­ing fol­lowed the ICC WCF In­ter­na­tional Cer­tifi­cate of Ori­gin Guide­lines, which are glob­ally ap­pli­ca­ble, Kevin J. Borg, Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral of the Malta Cham­ber said: “[We are] proud to form part of the pres­ti­gious CO Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Chain. It is a step to­wards ex­pand­ing our global busi­ness re­la­tion­ships to the ben­e­fit of our mem­bers in Malta whom we pro­vide with a range of tan­gi­ble, value-added ser­vices. This achieve­ment will bear wit­ness to our drive for con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment and our mis­sion to con­stantly ex­ceed busi­ness ex­pec­ta­tions.”

An au­ton­o­mous busi­ness or­gan­i­sa­tion with a long-stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion, the Malta Cham­ber serves as the lead­ing voice of the pri­vate sec­tor and a cham­pion for eco­nomic growth and in­vest­ment in the country. For over 40 years, the cham­ber has been ac­knowl­edged as the is­su­ing au­thor­ity of COs, which are ac­cepted by Malta Cus­toms and through­out the world.

Jo­hanna Calleja, Man­ager of Statu­tory Af­fairs and Ad­min­is­tra­tion of the Malta Cham­ber added: “The Cer­tifi­cate of Ori­gin ser­vice is an in­te­gral part of the Malta Cham­ber. We are con­stantly work­ing to­wards pro­vid­ing a com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice to our clients and be­com­ing a mem­ber of the CO Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Chain gives us a frame­work on which to con­tinue build­ing.”
