Certificate of Conformity for Exports to Egypt

Certificate of Conformity for Exports to Egypt

GOEIC Program

In 2012, Cotecna was accredited by the General Organization for Export and Import Control (GOEIC) to verify the conformity to local standards of all leather, artificial leather and textile products exported to the Arab Republic of Egypt.

On the 16th March 2016, the Egyptian Ministry of Trade and Industry has introduced important changes to the Customs Clearance procedure as well as to the list of regulated products subject to conformity assessment.

Cotecna can accompany exporters and importers throughout the conformity assessment process and assist them in obtaining a Certificate of Conformity (COC) in order to clear their goods at Customs.

GOEIC Regulated Products

Products subject to the Egyptian Verification of Conformity program include:

  • Clothing
  • Textiles
  • Ready-made clothes
  • Carpets and floor covers
  • Household textiles
  • Shoes
  • Leather bags

In case of doubt, please contact us to determine if your products are subject to regulation.

Egypt Conformity Assessment Process

Cotecna’s mandate includes the physical inspection, sampling and testing of goods in fully ISO 17025 accredited laboratories. Factory audits may also be carried out to ensure production is compliant with Egyptian standards.

To assess the conformity of a shipment, the Verification of Conformity process will follow one of the two following routes, depending on the profile of the exporter:

  • Route A for exporters with infrequent shipments
  • Route B for exporters with regular shipments.
