The National US Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC) Certification Service

Updated: Sep 5, 2022

What is NUSACC?

The National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC) is the only business entity in the United States with official recognition conferred by the League of Arab States and the General Union of Arab Chambers of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture.

​For nearly fifty years, the National U.S.-Arab Chamber of ‎Commerce (NUSACC) has been privileged to serve as the preeminent commercial bridge between the United States and the Arab world.

NUSACC assists U.S. exporters to the Arab world with all certification and legalization requirements. When certifying commercial and legal documents, it is essential to have the correct documents and authentications to ensure proper and timely processing. Errors in documentation are likely to cause costly delays. For commercial documents, such errors may also result in heavy fines and/or delays in the clearing of goods and shipments at ports of entry.
