‘Do you know how to request a 403 certificate?’ was something one of my colleagues asked me the other day. I had to shamefully admit I had no inkling what a 403 request even was. Let alone how to request one. I went looking for an answer for him. To meet the demands as listed in 403:2 BW for exclusion of the disclosure requirement there needs to be both a consent statement as well as a liability statement filed at the Chamber of Commerce. But what are these? and how do you request these certificates in turn?
