Certificates of Conformity are now required for goods exported to Kurdistan

21 September 2017


With immediate effect, exporters and importers trading with the Kurdistan region need to comply with the requirements of Kurdistan’s Consignment Based Conformity Assessment (CBCA) service which mandates that shipments require aCertificate of Conformity in order to clear customs.

Failure to do so can result in severe delays in goods clearance, penalties, or even shipments being returned.

CBCA verifies the conformity of products being shipped to the Kurdistan region against approved international/national standards. Shipments must comply with these standards in order to receive the Certificate of Conformity (CoC) to clear customs, thus giving Kurdistan's consumers the assurance they need in the quality and safety of goods being imported and helping to protect their environment. 

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