Egypt tightens rules for importing goods

Egypt will tighten its rules on importing goods starting from May 22, 2022.

A Certificate of Conformity or Inspection was already required for all regulated goods imported into Egypt. However, the list of regulated products has now been expanded by the Egyptian General Organization for Export and Import Control (GOIEC).

A new decree requires that all shipments containing regulated products, arriving at Egyptian ports, must be tested and have pre-inspection certificates prior to shipping. This Certificate of Conformity should be obtained from the inspection agencies that are authenticated and listed at the GOIEC website and their scope of testing is according to the Egyptian standard specifications.

The following products must be added to the scope of regulated products as of May 22, 2022:
