Exporting to Kuwait

Start exporting to Kuwait with a Technical Inspection Report from DIN CERTCO

Kuwait is the third most important market for German goods after the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a manufacturer, you can benefit from this strong market and secure the necessary credentials to export your products to Kuwait. All you need is a Technical Inspection Report (TIR) which serves as proof of the conformity of your products with Kuwait's technical requirements and is to be submitted to the customs authorities upon import.

We are authorized to issue TIR’s for exporting to Kuwait. Based on these, certificates of conformity are then drawn up by the "Public Authority for Industry" in Kuwait.

FAQ – What to consider when exporting to Kuwait

Would you like to learn more about exporting your products to Kuwait? Below are the answers to several frequently asked questions.

Show all Hide all

1. Which institution is responsible for proof of conformity in Kuwait?

The Public Authority of Industry (PAI) is responsible for the Kuwait Conformity Assurance Scheme (KUCAS). Through the program, regulated products from certain categories are tested in accordance with Kuwait’s technical requirements. Proof of conformity is provided in the form of a Technical Inspection Report (TIR), which is issued by DIN CERTCO after a positive evaluation.

2. What is the DIN CERTCO procedure for preparing a Technical Inspection Report?

The preparation of your Technical Inspection Report follows a five-step process. Initially, you send us an application form, and we then check the technical documentation and, if necessary, the products. After a product registration and, possibly, a shipment control, we issue you a Technical Inspection Report for Kuwait.

3. Which documents do I have to submit to DIN CERTCO for the application?

The application form test reports and, if necessary, product descriptions and instructions should be submitted, if these are not yet available.

4. Why are my goods subject to an additional inspection before export to Kuwait?

With a pre-shipment inspection , we check whether your export goods comply with the official regulations in Kuwait and correspond to the description in the export documents.

5. What happens if I do not have a TIR for my products?

In such a case, the delivery of goods will be inspected in Kuwaiti laboratories by the Public Authority for Industry (PAI). If they meet with Kuwait's requirements, the shipment will be released. If the goods do not meet the requirements of the KUCAS, the shipment is rejected. With a Technical Inspection Report you can avoid delays in delivery, additional costs and the risk of product refusal.

6. Do I need a separate TIR for each product?

No, a Technical Inspection Report may include several products of a delivery.

7. Can a TIR be reused for repeated imports of the same products to Kuwait?

If the same products are shipped again, a new Technical Inspection Report must be issued. Repeated inspection is necessary for this, but it does not have to be comprehensively evaluated and registered. For renewed delivery, please submit the application form and your delivery documents, such as the invoice.

8. Do I need a Technical Inspection Report (TIR) for exporting to Kuwait?

This has to be checked individually. Currently, the requirements change quite often. For electrical household products, it is very likely that a TIR is necessary.
