About KUCAS(TER,TIR Certificate)
The Public Authority for Industry of the State of Kuwait (PAI) implemented specific guidelines to verify the conformity of all 'Regulated Products' that are exported to Kuwait.' These guidelines are diligently enforced, and form the Kuwait Conformity Assurance Scheme (KUCAS). Exports to Kuwait of these products 'Regulated Products' require a Technical Evaluation Report (TER) and a Technical Inspection Report (TIR) to clear customs.
The KUCAS scheme consists of a group of procedures carried out by PAI to verify the conformity of all ‘Regulated Products’ to Kuwait’s Technical Regulations on imported and domestic products alike in accordance with the regulations of this scheme.
The scheme in brief:
All consignments of imported goods that contain regulated products must be accompanied by a Technical Inspection Report (TIR) and a Technical Evaluation Report (TER). Intertek is the leading approved Certification/Inspection Body (CIB) which offers this service to exporters.
The TIR and TER are required to ensure smooth customs clearance of shipments in Kuwait.
The TER confirms that the products comply with the relevant Kuwait technical regulations and approved international/regional/national standards. The TIR confirms that the goods comply Kuwaiti importation regulations.
The authorities in Kuwait may take random samples from imported consignments to verify compliance.
