The traditional green stationery that characterized the certificates issued by the Chamber of Commerce of Bogotá was replaced by ordinary white paper.
Now all certificates have a verification code with which the entity that requests it will be able to validate the information one time by logging on to www.ccb.org.co and they will incorporate a digital signature that gives it full legal effect in accordance with Law 527 of 1999.
What are the major changes to the certificates service?
Certificates of Natural or Legal persons, Commercial Establishments, Branches and Agencies, that are enrolled or have their registration in the CCB's jurisdiction (with the exception of the certified text of the documents contained in the records) will be issued only in electronic form, which shall be signed digitally, thus having full legal effect in accordance with the provisions of Law 527 of 1999.
All certificates issued in electronic form contain a verification code that is unique to each certificate and is listed at the top of the document, which can only be used once via the Certificates Verification module on our portal www.ccb.org.co.
All certificates that have been issued in electronic form can be printed on paper (regardless of the type of paper), where the information contained in the electronic certificate is presented and can be validated only once using the verification code at the top of the document.
