L.A. Area Chamber first in nation to launch online documentation platform for exporters

Online documentation platform will save L.A. area exporters time and money

LOS ANGELES, CA – Today, the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce announced that it has partnered with FastTrack Global Services (FTGS) to launch a new and comprehensive online platform for Certificates of Free Sales and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) documents. The first Chamber in the nation to offer such a platform, the L.A. Area Chamber embarked on this venture in a continued effort to help area businesses increase efficiency, and save time and money.

Certificates of Free Sales are required by many countries, and provide assurance that exported products are freely sold in the U.S. Some exports also require a Certificate of Good Manufacturing Practices, which supports a company’s claim of following good manufacturing practice guidelines and quality assurance. The L.A. Area Chamber has been a long-time issuer of export documentation, but with this new platform will do so with increased efficiency.

In creating the comprehensive platform, FTGS has worked with foreign governments, global regulatory and health agencies and freight forwarders to develop a secure, block chain technology that helps exporters obtain and process their documents with increased accuracy, enhanced security and instant traceability.



The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce represents the interests of business in L.A. County. Founded in 1888, the Chamber promotes a prosperous economy and quality of life in the Los Angeles region.
