Request and proceeding

Individuals or legal persons will request their affiliation into the CCB's Affiliates Circle, or its renewal, through the Affiliation Request Form as adopted by the Affiliation Committee. It will be a comprehensive part of the Affiliate Regulations. The interested party shall fill out the form in full, stating that they are in full compliance with all legal requirements and with all legal dispositions governing such matter at the time.

The signature on the form will serve as a statement to certify that the information provided therein is given under oath, and will allow to assume that the candidate knows and accepts the CCB's Affiliate Regulations.

The form will be filed physically at any of the Bogotá Chamber of Commerce's offices, or virtually, through the online platform that the CCB has set forth for such intent.

The Bogota Chamber of Commerce may validate the identity of the candidate through any means of identification it sees fit.

In the case of requests received online through the different channels the CCB has set forth for such purpose, authentication mechanisms will be required as necessary to validate the candidate's identity.

The interested party, or their legal representative, must enclose a copy of their personal ID.

The Committee will decide whether to accept or reject a request within two (2) months following submission of the request. In the event that this term expires before a decision on affiliation is made, the request will be considered to have been approved.

Notification of decisions

The Office of Institutional Relations will notify the business owner of the affiliation decision by e-mail or at the mailing address recorded in the Commercial Registry for legal notifications.
