Electrical Products now require evidence of Conformity for Export to Qatar

The Government of the State of Qatar, through the Qatar Ministry of Business and Trade Department of Consumer Protection and the Qatar General Organization for Standards and Metrology (QGOSM), has expanded the range of products now requiring evidence of Conformity before entering into the Qatari market.

The additional products are:

  • Electric Irons
  • Hair Dryers
  • Exhaust Fans

All consignments of the above listed electrical products must have an evidence of Conformity in the form of Test Reports/Certificates of Conformity. The Test Reports issued for the products must be from an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. These documents are mandatory Customs clearance documents in Qatar submitted by the Importer for the clearance of these shipments of electrical products. The documents confirm that the electrical products are in compliance with the applicable Qatar Sanctioned Standards.

Intertek has been given the approval by QGOSM to participate in the programme and to issue these documents for the afore mentioned products.
