Addition of Tobacco Products to the KUCAS Kuwait Regulated Product List
Addition of Tobacco Products to the KUCAS Regulated Product List.
The Public Authority for Industry (PAI) has just issued an approval letter to Intertek for issuing TIRs under KUCAS for all tobacco products that are exported to Kuwait from 9th August 2012 (inspections conducted from this date forward).
Tobacco products require a TIR for Customs Clearance. The TIR will be issued on the basis of 100% inspection without any selectivity until further notice.
The applicable standard to be applied is GS 246 - Labelling of Packages of Tobacco Products.
PAI has also stated that some flexibility at the early implementation stages may be provided to shipments that arrive without the necessary labelling.
Intertek is one of the service providers approved for the certification of Tobacco shipments under the KUCAS.
