The Company is committed to provide any further information and documents necessary for the issuing of this certificate, at the request of the competent bodies.
Authorising the use of DigiChambers
Each request that is submitted electronically, shall be indisputably linked with and allocated to the person who is logged in with the user name that DigiChambers has issued to him, and the Company shall be bound by this.
The Company authorizes the administrator to add, change and remove the permissions to use DigiChambers with a view to requesting COs. This management is done via the DigiChambers website. The persons who are authorised by the administrator, are referred to below as "user(s)".

DigiChambers reserves the right to exclude any of these authentication methods, or to allow others, at any time.
Chamber of Commerce Permissions
At least one person must have permission as an administrator.

The Company authorizes the Chamber of Commerce responsible for its account to change the authentication method on simple request (by e-mail) by the administrator.
Printing of COs and visas
If the Company chooses to print COs and visas within the company, the user must verify each time that the CO or the visa was printed correctly and legibly. In case of doubt, he shall immediately notify the competent Chamber. In that case, the CO or the visa cannot be used until the Chamber gives its permission to do so.
If the Company prints a visa on an original document, he must ensure that the original document corresponds to the document for which he requested a visa. If not, he must destroy the endorsed document and inform the Chamber of Commerce.
Printing of COs on blanc paper
DigiChambers allows to print certificates of origin on blank paper instead of on pre-printed forms.
Printing should be done in the following manner:
- The size of the sheet on which the CO is printed is 210x297 mm (with a tolerance of -5 mm and + 8mm);
- The paper is white and the weight is at least 64 gr (preferably 80 gr);
- The printing of the certificate of origin must be done on a color printer.
The Company immediately informs its Chamber of Commerce of any problems with the acceptance of these certificates encountered abroad or at Embassies in Belgium.
The Company actively collaborates with the possible controls carried out by its Chamber of Commerce.
Access to this simplification can be terminated at any time by the Chamber of Commerce.
B. Consultation and use of the internet site
The users of the application must have a recent browser. The compatibility of the browser can be checked via the DigiChambers website.
A colour printer is required to print the documents correctly.
DigiChambers reserves the right to change these requirements at all times. They can be accessed through the section "system requirements" on the DigiChambers website.
