In 1857 Aleksandar Karađorđević, the grand duke of that time, carried out an enactment-bylaw called “The Organization of Commercial Committee” in Belgrade. The first commercial association in Serbia founded as a result of this enactment; was called “Commercial Committee” with its headquarters located in Belgrade. Commercial Committee relied on guilds and on associations of craftsmen and merchants in its work.

Chamber (commercial) association foundations were laid by establishing the first Commercial Committee in Belgrade, which indicates that chambers of commerce have more than 140 year long tradition in Serbia.

In 1910 the Kingdom of Serbia’s National Parliament passed a law, stores were affected with it, and that was the first time that business associations called chambers were founded in Serbia as a type of public law establishment with the same status and tasks as chambers in the other countries have had.

Commercial Committee in Belgrade continued with its activities as a representative of business interests in the entire territory of its kingdom, even in exile, in France during the World War I.

Kingdom of Serbia’s National Parliament passed another stores law in 1931 and with this act a homogeneous organization of chambers was established in the entire country. Chambers are defined as public law organizations and advisory organs of state administrative offices with autonomous authorities when it comes to the interest of represented business sectors. Membership was obligatory.

The Federal National Parliament passed a law in 1962 with a main purpose of creating the chambers as homogenous organizations and with that act started a new phase in organization and managing of chambers in the SFRJ and in the Republic of Serbia. Instead of chambers which were until than divided into branches, unified chambers of commerce were founded for all of the business sectors.
