    Chamber of Crafts

    Did I formulate my sentence correctly?
    But it gets even better, because the Chamber of Crafts and Trades contradicts the foundation in this matter, because it has long since developed its own competence queries.

    I think you could do without the first comma.
    You have used a second "because", which is odd. This can be avoided by starting a new sentence.
    What do "it" and "its" refer to in the third part of the sentence?
    Terms like "foundation" and "competence enquires" are vague.

    Have I constructed my sentence correctly?
