Certificate of Conformity for exports to Algeria

Chamber International works with Intertek to help UK exporters meet the mandatory requirement for Certificates of Conformity (CoCs).

In March 2011, the Algerian Ministry of Commerce published a note to all importers reminding them of the obligation to submit a proof of conformity by way of a CoC or certificate of quality for all exports to Algeria; this is to ensure that they meet legal and regulatory requirements that affect them.

This obligation is enforced by law 09-03, dated 25/02/2009, and decree 05-467 dated 12/12/2005, on conditions and procedures of conformity control of imported goods at customs.

The required CoC is also referred to as "Certificat de contrôle de qualité". Original copies of certificates must be presented to customs at the time of import clearance and must be issued in the country of export.

How can I arrange an inspection?

One of our export consultants will go through the inspection requirements with you and provide a quotation the same day along with our terms and conditions.

Some or all of the following documents are needed to support your application for a CoC: Certificate of Origin, Test Reports (if applicable), Letters of Credit, and Packing Lists.

Inspections are normally arranged within 48 hours of your initial call to us.

Following a satisfactory inspection, your CoC will normally be issued within 72 hours.

Exporters of regulated products to Algeria can contact Chamber International to obtain more information on the programme and also apply for CoCs.
