User Registration and Company Accounts

Register as a new user on eCert Malta, this will provide you with a login into the eCert Malta site.

This will register your company to use the eCert service and enable you to apply for certificates of origin online, and also get other documents certified.

If you are a freight forwarder or work for multiple companies, you can create as many eCert company accounts as you want by accessing the 'New Account Setup' page.

Once you have setup a new eCert company account you will be automatically redirected to the 'My eCert' page.

In order to have documents certified by the chamber of commerce, you are required to have a signed 'Letter of Waiver Agreement' in place, you can't start a new eCert application for certified documents until this agreement has been completed to the satisfaction of your chosen chamber of commerce and the chamber have authorised your account.

There is a link in the eCert tool where you can download the required documents. These must be completed fully and returned to the contact at your chosen chamber of commerce.

If you already have a letter of waiver agreement in place with the chamber then the chamber will confirm this and enable your eCert company account.

After your eCert company account has been enabled you will be able to start an application for certified documents.
