On 30th December 2015 the Egyptian Government issued the Ministerial Decrees n. 992/2015 and 43/2016 (see below), as proposed by the Minister of Trade and Industry. As from 1st March 2016, companies willing to export their products to Egypt must obtain a registration in a Register of Factories and Companies.

The new regulation regards a number of commodities listed at bottom of the Decrees, that won’t be imported into Egypt if the foreign Factory producing them isn’t officially registered in this record.

Further new rules issued by the Egyptian Central Bank provide that all documents covering a given shipment shall be sent by the Bank of Exporter to the Bank of Egyptian Receiver.

On the website GOIEC.gov.eg, of the General Organization for Import & Export Control, there are more specific information about the registration, in compliance with the new regulations on export to Egypt.
