To strengthen Egypt’s food control system, the National Food Safety Authority (NFSA) implemented the PSI (Pre-Shipment Inspection) scheme to regulate food products import in the country and safeguard the well-being of the Egyptian consumer. Further, this scheme is also aimed at helping traders, exporters and importers to gain a smoother customs clearance process.
Commencing from 1st December 2020, this new program mandates that all imported products which are subject to this conformity assessment must meet the requirements set in decree no. 2020/2 & decree no. 2020/14.
Overall, the imported regulated food products now requires additional regulatory controls such as sampling, testing, inspection, loading supervision and container sealing.
As the appointed inspection body, TÜV Rheinland is now officially authorized to issue the Certificate of Inspection (COI) in accordance to the latest NFSA PSI requirements.
As a gateway for you to trade globally, our role is to provide traders with a reliable service for PSI Certification to place your products on the Egyptian market confidently.
