Start the export to Egypt with an export certificate (Certificate of Inspection) from DIN CERTCO/ TÜV Rheinland
Egypt is an interesting market that has grown steadily within the last years and after South Africa, it is the most industrialized country on the African continent. As a manufacturer, you can benefit from this economic upswing by exporting your goods to Egypt. All you need is an export certificate (Certificate of Inspection).
The Egyptian PVoC program ensures that a consignment complies with the relevant national and international standards and technical regulations. The process includes a verification of the proof of conformity, a physical verification of the shipment and a verification of the correlation with the shipping documents.
TÜV Rheinland offers these services to exporters/importers who need to have their regulated products certified.
The Ministry of Industry and Foreign Trade of Egypt has issued two new ordinances, 991/2015 and 43/2015, beginning on 16 March 2016.
According to this regulation, only "registered" manufacturing plants or registered companies that are "trademark owners" may export regulated products to Egypt. TÜV Rheinland can assist customers in the preparation of the registration process.
In addition to registration, each shipment of regulated products to Egypt requires a Certificate of Inspection. TÜV Rheinland issues the Certificate of Inspection.
