Gulf Technical Regulations for Exports of Low Voltage Electrical Products to Kuwait.

G-Mark Regulation will be enforced from 1st July 2016 for Low Voltage Electrical Products exported to the GCC countries. Shipments of Electrical products covered under the scope of Gulf Technical Regulation for Low Voltage Electrical and Appliances (Document reference BD-142004-01 ) should comply with the ‘G-Mark’ Regulation from this date onwards.

 

Kuwait Customs will strictly enforce the G Mark regulations for shipments of low voltage electrical products. Upon arrival of such shipments at Kuwait's Ports/Borders, Kuwait Customs will verify the authenticity of the ‘G Mark’on the products.

 

To avoid any problems or delays at the Ports/Borders Intertek, under the mandate of the Public Authority for Industry (PAI ), would perform the following verification for Exporters and Manufacturers of Electrical product shipments which are covered both under KUCAS, Kuwait's Conformity Assurance Scheme, as well as those in List 2 category of the Gulf Technical Regulation for Low Voltage Electrical and Appliances.

 

  • Review of existing Technical Evaluation Report (TER) to ensure that TER was issued based on Full type Test Reports in accordance with the relevant IEC Standards.
  • Review of TIRs and TERs to ensure that the Test Reports meet IEC safety and EMC standard requirements.
  • Review of CB Test Reports to ensure that they are not more than three years old from their issue date.

  • Verify the presence of ‘G Mark’ on the products and on its packaging during Inspection.
