Egyptian import regulations for textiles and leather products now impose stringent testing requirements following the enactment of two Ministerial Decrees (626/2011 & 660/2011). Exporters of footwear are required to furnish each shipment with an inspection certificate unless the importers are pre-registered with the Egyptian import/export oversight authority GOEIC.

Imported footwear products must conform to Egyptian standards and safety specifications. Of these, ES 3571/2006 applies specifically to general footwear and EMS 3572/2006 applies to sports shoes.

ES 3571/2006 (Footwear and its parts): Applies to all general footwear types and components, which includes slippers, clogs, sandals, etc. with uppers made of natural leather, artificial leather, textiles or any mixture of these and where the sole can be made from any material.

EMS 3572/2006 (Footwear and its parts - sports shoes): Applies to all types of shoes for sport and components, which includes football shoes, running shoes, tennis shoes, jumping shoes, etc with uppers made of natural or artificial leather or from textiles like canvas, with any kind of sole.

Egyptian standards ES 3571/2006 and EMS 3572/2006 require testing for thickness, hardness, specific gravity, pH value, colorfastness to rubbing and to light, flexing resistance, tearing resistance, adhesion strength, whole flexing of the shoe, coefficient of rubbing, water vapor permeability and absorption, the ability to absorb water, shoe size and PCP.

In addition, product labels are required to specify the product name and trade mark, contents, size and country of origin. Throughout its global network of laboratories and offices, SGS offers high quality testing for textiles, footwear and accessories.
