A Certificate of Inspection (COI) is now mandatory under the ICBCM Scheme for HS code products not currently regulated by Iraq ICIGI or Kurdistan KSQCA conformity assessment programmes.
The Pre-Importation Inspection, Testing & Certification Program of Goods to Iraq (ICIGI) and The Kurdistan Standardization and Quality Control Administration (KSQCA) have confirmed that a Certificate of Inspection (COI) is now mandatory for products not currently regulated under either countries conformity assessment programmes (CAP).
Currently, certain HS codes and product types are regulated and required to confirm to the Iraq ICIGI or Kurdistan KSQCA CAP. The certificate of conformity (CoC) required depends on which country region products are shipped to, with some areas of Iraq requiring products to carry a Kurdistan CoC. This change means that for HS Codes or product types that are not currently regulated, a mandatory third-party inspection is now required to apply for certified and legalized country of origin documents.
Our expert Iraq and Kurdistan Account Managers are on hand to provide regulatory clarification, arrange third party inspections and hassle free CoC issuance.
