eCert – eCertification Platform
The Central Business Register (CBR) is used to register legal entities (businesses) to validate their details to be able to trade. To export goods to other importing countries, businesses have to capture information that is required to facilitate the process such as the business legal name, tax numbers, business addresses, billing information and supply any other supporting documentation that may be required by authorities approving the trade of their goods.
The CBR can be accessed via the URL: https://cbr.ecert.co.za
To register a business on the Central Business Register the user must be registered on the User Authentication Service (UAS).
If you are not already registered as a user on the UAS then please do so on the platform first, for the fruit sector this will be PhytClean or via eCert (Link Provided to Online KB)
