Egypt’s Ministry of Trade and Industry issued decree 43 for the year 2016, on January 16th
, amending the rules organizing the registration of factories qualified to export listed products to Egypt.
The new decree requires factories and companies, who own trademarks in Egypt, to export listed products and to register their trademarks with the General Organization for Export and Import Control (GOEIC
). A Ministerial decree concerned with foreign trade; however, will be issued where they may exempt any or all registration conditions determined thereby.
The decree that is based on the proposition of trade agreements and foreign trade shall come into effect two months after the date of its publication and will, in turn, cancel all previous decrees contradicting the provisions of this Decree.
