The Accreditation of local chambers of commerce
The accreditation of local chambers of commerce in Belgium is built around 12 principles that every chamber must respect. These principles are clearly cited in the accreditation programme.
The Accreditation of bilateral chambers of commerce
The accreditation of Belgian chambers of commerce abroad rests on three major pillars: corporate governance, high-quality service and constructive collaboration with the diplomatic missions abroad. This accreditation occurs in close collaboration with the Chambre de Commerce du Luxembourg, since the majority of bilateral chambers also promote the economic and commercial interests of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Belgian chambers of commerce abroad endorsing the principles of the accreditation programme, yet which are too young or too small, may be admitted as associate members of the Federation.
