In a statement issued by the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI), the CEO of SACCI Mr Alan Mukoki said:
The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry wishes to announce that the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s authority to issue certificates of origin to exporting businesses will be suspended with effect from the 15 May 2019.
Businesses in the greater Durban area are advised to exercise caution in this regard. SACCI will be making further announcements in this regard to prevent any possible disruption and to limit any disruption that may emanate. A new competent authority will be enabled as a matter of urgency to take over this functionality and ensure a smooth transition.
Further announcements will be made in this regard.
