Egypt NTRA Certificate Services

Egypt NTRA Certificate Services

General Information:

At the present time Egyptian authorities are only requiring certification of terminal, telecom, and radio communication (wireless) equipment.  NTRA (National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority) regulates and certifies terminal, telecom, and radio communication (wireless) equipment.

Challenges Obtaining and Maintaining Egyptian Certification

Obtaining Egyptian certification can be tricky, and delays can occur from not going in with the right certification plan, or having the incorrect understanding of the certification process.  The following are preventable issues that can cause delays:

  • Not understanding if your products fall under mandatory NTRA certification or only requires CoI declaration (Certificate of Inspection)
  • Submitting incorrect forms and documents to Egyptian certification bodies
  • Not setting up and scheduling pre-inspection prior to shipment
  • Not properly communicating and following up with certification bodies

How Can We Help?

G&M utilizes the following practices to achieve a fast and efficient Egyptian certification:

  • Develop a certification plan for your company that maximizes certification coverage of current and future products based on product type.
  • Work with local Egyptian authorities to expedite certification
  • Rely on G&M’s experience to communicate directly with Egyptian authorities to minimize communication gaps.
  • Track and alert customers of upcoming changes to regulations and standards.

G&M Compliance has established partners in Egypt to ensure that the certification process is completed in a timely manner. Our compliance experts understand the regulations and technical requirements necessary to minimize the risk of certification delays or rejection.  In addition we stay updated on ever-changing regulations and requirements.

All  product  shipments  need  to  be  accompanied  by  a  Certificate  of  Inspection  before  they  can  be  imported  into  Egypt.    The  Certificate  of  Inspection  (CoI)  is  issued  by  the  Egyptian  General  Organization  for  Export  &  Import  Control  (GOEIC)  and  is  mandatory  for  all  shipments.  Physical  shipment  inspection  is  required  before  certification  can  be  completed.    We  can  arrange  with  you  a  mutually  convenient  date,  time  and  location  for  the  shipment  inspection  to  be  carried  out.    This  can  normally  be  arranged  within  48  hours.    The  following  documents  and  information  are  required:

  • A  copy  of  Commercial  Invoice
  • Letter  of  Credit  (L/C)
  • A  copy  of  the  Quality  Management  System  Certificate  (ISO  9001),  if  available
  • Test  documents  such  as  test  reports,  test  certificates,  etc.

We have found that often times certification bottlenecks can occur within a manufacturer’s organization.  As a result, we offer a service to provide internal help managing regulatory certification tasks.  Because G&M is not a certification body, we are in a unique position to offer valuable regulatory expertise without any conflict of interest issues.  In such cases we place G&M certification experts into our customers’ organizations to manage the certification process for them.  Once on the inside, our managers can leverage G&Ms collective experience to guide certification processes in an efficient and cost-effective manner.  To learn more about this service see our Homologation Management Service Page.  
Untimely expirations of certificates can cause delays in product deliveries.  Re-certification of products will generally be treated as new submittals instead of certificate renewals.  This can be time-consuming and costly.  G&M provides a web-based certification tracking system that alerts users when expirations are coming, provides on-line storage of important certification documentation, and is searchable by certification specific criteria.  For more information on this system see our CATS page.
