GOEIC (General Organization for the Control of Imports and Exports of the Egypt Government) is the body that authorizes entities to issue certificates of inspection of regulated products exported to Egypt.
The Egyptian Ministry of Industry and Foreign Trade recently issued two decrees (which came into force in early 2016) introducing significant changes in the procedure for importing products, as well as in the expansion of regulated products list.
The list of regulated products that must be inspected by an authorized entity includes among others: textiles, foods, electrical and lighting products, health and beauty products, health articles, toys…
A Certificate of Inspection must be issued for all exports of regulated products to Egypt, in order to proceed to the proper customs clearance at Egyptian ports and borders. OCA Egypt has been approved to issue such Inspection Certificates for imports from any country to Egypt.
This is an important move for OCA International, as it enters for the first time in the Conformity Verification Industry for Governments and facilitating access to the Egyptian market especially for all Spanish exporters.
