GOEIC gives the importers a deadline to reconcile their situation

 

GOEIC followed up the implementation of the ministerial decrees (961/2012) and (991/2015) with what some of the importers did in terms of misunderstanding of the decree as GOEIC is inspecting these items (furniture – ready-made cloths – carpets – floor covers – shoes – leather bags) in its labs, and considering it as an alternative to the "pre-inspection shipment certificate" or registration according to the provisions of Article (94) of the list of Import Rules Regulations (770/2005).

 

This has resulted in an increase in the time of release of shipments at a time when the state seeks to reduce it, and to ensure that the item is inspected in the country of origin according to its own specifications, with only conducting random examination (inspection) of the imported only, and to reduce the pressure on the laboratories.

 

Accordingly,

 

it was decided to give a grace period starting from 2/12/2020 to 16/2/2020 so that the procedures for any shipment of (furniture – ready-made cloths – carpets – floor covers – shoes – leather bags) are not to be carried out unless fully compatible with one of the following alternatives:

 

Alternative (1): To be one of the producers registered at GOEIC in accordance with the provisions of Article (94) of the list of Import Rules Regulations (770/2005) and its amendments.

 

Alternative (2): Presenting a certified and authenticated inspection and auditing certificate that includes the shipment data and the results of the inspection and test indicating the conformity to the Egyptian standard specifications approved by the "International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation" (ILAC).
