Update: Export to EGYPT: Expansion of Product Conformity Assessment program

Hereby we would like to inform you about an SGS update regarding the Expansion of Product Conformity Assessment program for Egypt.

Besides the product registration required by Egyptian Ministerial Decree NO. 43/Jan 2016 and in accordance with the Egyptian Ministerial decree NO. 991/Dec 2015, a number of products have been added to the regulated products under the Egypt Product Conformity Assessment (PCA) scheme. As informed by GOEIC (General Organization for Exports Imports & Control), in addition to the registration required for the factory and/or the trademark company, the products mentioned shall be subjected to Egypt PCA scheme, therefore a Certificate of Inspection (COI) is a mandatory requirement for Customs clearance.

The objective of this program is to ensure the quality of products as well as the health, safety and environmental protection of Egyptian consumers.

To obtain evidence that all requirements as mentioned in the applicable standards or technical requirements are met, goods must undergo the following verification process:

  • Physical inspection
  • Laboratory testing: Accepted laboratories are as follows:
  • SGS laboratories accredited to ISO/IEC 17025;
  • Third party ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory operating as per the ILAC guidelines;

The following product groups are now regulated under the Egypt PCA scheme.
