Intertek is able to assist exporters to Algeria by offering inspection services to obtain the Certificate of Conformity also known as Certificate of Quality, Certificat de contrôle de qualité, which is required for all exports to Algeria.
The Algerian Ministry of Commerce published a note in March 2011 to all importers reminding them of the obligation to submit proof of conformity by way of a certificate of conformity 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.
Intertek can help exporters to Algeria comply with this notice by offering inspection services to obtain the necessary Certificate of Conformity.
The required Certificate of Conformity can also be referred as the “Certificat de contrôle de qualité”. The original copy of the Certificate of Conformity is needed for every shipment and should be issued in the country of export. It is a mandatory document for Algerian Customs clearance.
