Cairo- Feb 5, 2022

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has visited the headquarters of the Egyptian General Organization for Standardization and Quality (EOS), where she inspected a number of testing laboratories; the energy efficiency, certificate registration, consumer protection and citizen service units; as well as the training center.

She also held a meeting with Khaled Sofy, head of the EOS, and its top officials, where they reviewed the authority's vision to develop the standard specifications system and boost local product quality.

“We are keen to reconcile Egyptian specifications with global standards, while introducing new ones that take into account national requirements,” Gamea said, stressing that standard specifications protect Egyptian consumers from low-quality imports.

Sofi noted that the authority issued 9,300 Egyptian specifications covering the fields of engineering, food, chemicals, building materials, refractories, garments and textiles, petroleum products, communications, medical devices, and industrial standards. It also granted the Quality Mark to 188 companies for a total of 504 products.

The EOS, he added, aims to issue further standard specifications in tourism, transport, communications, information, safety, occupational health and social responsibility.
