FAQ

1Why am I getting 'There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.' when I submit a web form?
A common reason for reCAPTCHA rejecting a submission is because the Telephone field contains blanks, parentheses, dashes or other special characters. Please try using the format '+Country Code' and your number only, for example: +441727530188 If the form still fails to submit, please capture an image of your screen and forward it to us at enquiries@sgsa.com. The SGSA website is protected by reCAPTCHA V3 to stop spam forms being submitted. reCAPTCHA checks to see what the user has been doing prior to the form being submitted to assess whether the site visitor is a robot or not (this is different to V1 that asked users to retype difficult-to-read characters and V2 that asked users to select the pictures that contained traffic lights, etc.). V3 is more user-friendly except when it doesn't work because Google doesn’t tell us why a submission was rejected (for example, being on the web page for too long before submitting can be a problem). We can only hope that the Artificial Intelligence of Google V3 reCAPTCHA improves over time and apologise for any inconvenience in the meantime.
2Where can I find my EORI or IEC number for shipping my student kit?
Your local country Accounts Team or Finance office will be able to provide you with this information.
3What should I do if my student kit is being held in Customs?
The three most common reasons for a student kit being held at Customs are: 1. The EORI or iEC numbers that we were provided by your company have not been accepted. If this is the case then you will need to contact the local country courier office to provide the correct information. 2. Customs require the Tariff codes for the contents of your student kit. The tariff code numbers are '49019900' for the printed student manual and books, etc., and '96081010' for the SGSA pen. 3. Import Duties have not been paid. We specify that all important duties on the shipments are charged back to SGSA but if this isn't possible then we will pay the charges by credit card. Please forward any paperwork connected with the payment request to enquiries@sgsa.com
4Is there more reasonably priced accommodation near to the Delta Hotels Heathrow Windsor?
The Travelodge Langley is opposite the Delta Hotels Heathrow/Windsor.
5Do I have to pay for parking for the SGSA Executive Forum or classes?
No, the cost of parking is included for delegates attending the SGSA Executive Forum or classes at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel London Heathrow, Delta Hotels Heathrow Windsor, London Heathrow Marriott and Cork International Hotels. However, you do need to register your car at the receptions of these hotels on arrival. These hotels operate a parking scheme based on an ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) system. When you drive into the hotels' car parks, your number plate will be automatically scanned and recorded. If you leave the car park without informing the hotel Reception of your vehicle registration number then you will receive an automatic fine of £100.00.

On arrival at the hotel, please go to Reception and inform the staff that you are attending a SGSA class or event for x days. You will then be asked to enter your vehicle registration number into their system. Please enter your vehicle registration number carefully as a mistake will result in a fine. You will only need to register your vehicle once provided that you confirm the date of the last day of the class with the hotel staff. However, if you change vehicles during the class then you must notify the hotel of the change.

If you are staying at the hotel and check-in the day before the class, please note that your parking is only paid for the actual dates of the class. SGSA cannot be held responsible for any parking fines incurred.
