New e-service allows entrepreneurs to obtain all necessary documents (veterinary, phytosanitary, origin, food safety, free sales and other certificates) including electronic customs declaration and export promotion document by using online single export application. The system of completing a single export application is based on intellectual logic. New user enters minimum information about oneself. After putting in the information (for example product name or exporting country) only once, the system automatically determines other necessary data, including documents required for importing country, and presents to an applicant. At the next stage, an online single export application is formed on the basis of the applicant's consent and addressed to the participants (state agencies) defined by the system for obtaining the required permits.
