Egypt has recently issued new decrees with regards to the testing and inspection process of imported textile and clothing.

This law which will be implemented from June 15, 2012 will apply to imports of clothing, linen textiles, yarns, carpets, floor coverings and home textiles.

After the stipulated date, textile and clothing shipped in to Egypt will need to be accompanied by an inspection certificate issued by an accredited inspection company.

Alongside, the documents should contain the following: quantity, value, country of manufacturing, factory name and address and licensed trademarks of the exporter.

The documents will also need to have a laboratory test report as evidence to prove that, goods comply with Egyptian Quality Standards and Regulations (decree 626/2011 and 660/ 2011).

The new decree prohibits entry of garments which have harmful carcinogenic dyes, harmful dyes, flame retardants and cadmium.

On the other hand, it has put limits on formaldehyde content for baby clothing at 20 PPM, direct skin contact at 75 PPM and for those with zero skin contact at 300 PPM.

Lead in baby clothing has been permitted to a maximum 300 PPM, nickel release at a maximum 0.5 micrograms/cm2/week and phthalates at 0.1 percent of sample weight.

In case of labeling requirements, labels should contain, declaration of country of origin, name of manufacturer, importer, registered trade marks, fiber content and care label according to 16 CFR 423.
