Egyptian Pre-Inspection Program for GOEIC

To import goods into Egypt Verification of Conformity “VoC” is required to clear Egyptian custom. All consignments imported into Egypt with products that are subject to the program, require a Verification of Conformity to ensure that the products meet the required product standards as determined by the Egyptian standard

TÜV NORD can ensure that your products can enter Egypt safely, without excessive paperwork. 


What steps do you need to take?


Step 1: Send us the application form and the proforma invoices of the goods you wish to export. We will take care of the verification of the documents.

Step 2: Ensure you have laboratory tests of the goods that will be exported. TÜV NORD can take samples or you can provide the test reports from an ISO 17025 certified laboratory. To know which tests you must provide, please inform us about the products you are exporting using the form on this page and we will inform you subsequently.

Step 3: Inspection of the goods before being exported.

Step 4: You will receive a draft Certificate of Conformity for you to verify.

Step 5: Send us the final invoices and the bill of loading which we will transfer to TÜV NORD Egypt in order to issue the final CoC. TÜV NORD Egypt will, in turn, send you the final CoC and, depending on your import/export process, transfer a copy to the Egyptian Customs authorities or to your importer/exporter.

When the goods arrive in Egypt, your client and the Customs authorities are already informed that the goods meet Egyptian standards and are conform to the GOEIC specifications.

Your goods will be cleared by the Egyptian Customs authorities without any problem.
