Algeria flag

In March 2011, the Algerian Ministry of Commerce has published a note to all importers reminding them of their obligation to submit a proof of conformity for imported goods.

The obligation is enforced by law 09-03 issued on 25/02/2009 and decree 05-467 issued on 12/12/2005, on conditions and procedures of conformity control of imported goods at customs. Certificates must be issued by an independent third party inspection body and member of the TIC Council (formerly: International Federation of Inspection Agencies - IFIA).

As an authorized Certification and Inspection Body, TÜV Rheinland may issue the required ‘Certificat de Contrôle Qualité’ in the country of export.

Detailed Information

with the requirements of applicable standards and technical regulations.
