Export Procedures and Documentation


This course explains the various types of documents, certificates and licenses that need to be prepared by exporters after taking an international order.

These documents are crucial for a smooth export journey. Failing to comply with the required documentation risks incurring penalties, delays and additional costs that can reduce your competitiveness and ultimately could endanger the sustainability of your whole export business.

The course aims to give an overview of all those documents needed, their usage, from where you can get them, so you are confident when negotiating with a custom broker and your final buyer.

The course will be delivered over 2 consecutive days. On the first day, we explain everything about all the documents usually required and on the second day, we solve together several case studies involving different types of products to understand the type of documents required for a cost-effective custom clearance.


  • Identify the type of documents requested for export of agriculture or processed products and the authorities that issue them.
  • Learn about custom duties and taxes related to exporting from Lebanon
  • Learn about free trade agreements and how to benefit from them through the right documentation
  • Choose the right custom broker for your business

Format of the Course

The first session will be delivered in-person on Dec. 6 and will last around 3 hours and the second will be delivered online on Dec. 7 and will last around 2 hours.


A certificate of completion is issued electronically at the end of the course if participants meet the course requirements and objectives. A test at the end of the course will help trainers to evaluate the participants' eligibility for the certificate.
