Egyptian Pre-Inspection Program for NFSA

To import goods into Egypt, a Certificate of Inspection (COI) is required in order for goods to be released from the Egyptian ports in no time and without additional cost. All consignments imported to Egypt within the products which are subjected to the program “Foods & beverages”, require a Certificate of Inspection “COI” to ensure that products meet the required product standards as determined by the Egyptian standards & NFSA.

Our role is to assess and verify the compliance of food and beverage that will be exported to Egypt in accordance with all regulations, rules and specifications approved by NFSA.
