The State Company for Iraqi Fairs and Commercial Services, a subsidiary of the Ministry of Trade in the Republic of Iraq, has implemented the Certificate of Registration (CoR) Program for manufacturers and suppliers from exporting countries. Implementation takes place gradually by regulated product categories and in accordance with a specified schedule.
Effective from 1st January 2021, manufacturers and suppliers of “Electrical (Household Appliances, IT Equipment)” exporting to Iraq must obtain the CoR prior to their shipments. It will be a mandatory prerequisite to issuing the import license in the Republic of Iraq . The aim of the CoR scheme is to validate the credibility of manufacturers and suppliers that wish to export goods to the Republic of Iraq. Ensuring that these parties are verified in the country of origin prior to entering the Iraqi market not only promotes governance and safeguards the integrity of the trade environment, it also protects the end consumer whilst minimizing risk for importers and traders. Global manufacturers and suppliers can also benefit from enhanced ease of doing business and time to market.
As the sole certification body of the scheme, TÜV Rheinland experts worldwide are happy to receive the COR scheme applications and provide any information required about the program in order for traders to achieve smooth market access.I called the other day about the new Certificate of Registration Scheme for Manufacturers and Suppliers exporting to Iraq that the Iraqi government has put in place recently.
