TO ALL IMPORTERS IN ETHIOPIA

The Ministry trust all Suppliers to provide material, products, and services which meet all of the specifications and quality requirements of relevant Mandatory Ethiopian Standards. However, compliance of product to pertinent   standard is mandatory and the Ministry   can randomly verify the test certificate issued
The enforcement of Mandatory standards should be done in such a manner that their legitimate objectives are fulfilled without putting an unnecessary burden on business. Therefore, With the objective of expediting the release of imported goods at the custom get, while ensuring that products are safe for consumers, the Ministry of Trade of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia confirms that all imported goods, under the list of Mandatory Ethiopian Standards, should be accompanied by a Laboratory test certificate from an authorized ISO/IEC 17025 accredited third party inspection body. Hence, goods will be
released by Ministry of Trade to enter the local market, without further intensive inspection, sampling and testing. We believe that, this process will certainly enhance competitiveness of the importer in the market. Those inspection bodies which are providing fraud certificate will be seriously penalized .Shipments being imported without the necessary test certificate of inspection will be subject to existing protracted import inspection procedures. In this regard the Ministry will not take any responsibility for dalliance at customs gate
 This process shall be implemented in the following manner:
  • Imports at the ports of entry, of the goods under the list of mandatory Ethiopian Standards shall be accompanied by laboratory test certificate   issued by an authorized Third Party Inspection Body.
  • The third party inspection body laboratory should be accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by an accreditation body which is a signatory to the ILAC Mutual Recognition Arrangement and shall be a member of the International Federation of Inspection Agencies (IFIA).
  • The third party inspection body shall have the necessary IT capabilities, wherein the Ministry of Trade  can access the Inspection Body IT system and view, on line, the laboratory analysis report issued for the necessary validation of such reports for authenticity checks.
  • The IT system of the third party inspection body should as well permit to Ministry of Trade  verify on line the technical documents (test reports, analysis, …etc) used as base of issuance of the test certificate.
  • For ease of communication possibly the third party inspection body can have a branch or representative legal entity in Ethiopia.
  • The inspection body should be liable  for the certificate issued regarding the consignment for any quality  problem encountered during  random inspection.
  • The inspection body  which provide  third part  certificate shall be impartial and consistent in its activities.
  • The test  certificate should represent the actual consignment shipped to Ethiopia and factory or any source of certificate from non ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory will not be accepted.
  • The Ministry of Trade  will accept from any  the third party inspection bodies which comply with above requirements and which are accepted to issue test  certificates for the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
  • Such laboratory test certificates shall mention the relevant standard and the corresponding test results. The ‘relevant’ standard shall be Mandatory Ethiopian standard or an international standard or standard of country of supply provided it is in line with international standards.
  • Only test certificates  issued by An ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory and ILAC registered will be accepted.
  • Products with valid third party inspection certificates shall be cleared by Ministry of Trade  to enter Ethiopian market; however, Ministry of Trade reserves the right to conduct random sampling and testing of such imported goods.
  • Import products arriving in Ethiopia ports without  the necessary third party inspection certificates, will be subject to existing import procedures.
 
Ministry of Trade urges importers to share this important matter to their suppliers abroad.
 
For the third party certification bodies, the exporters can contact their local accreditation body or the Ministry for the list of those that are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025.
 
Attached Annex is the list of mandatory Ethiopian standards, the products under which need to have Certificates of Conformity.
