Certification services in Kuwait:
Exporters and manufacturers of products subject to mandatory certification for shipment to Kuwait must ensure that those products comply with the requirements established by the Kuwait Quality Assurance Program (KUCAS).
KUCAS is the 'Kuwait Conformity Assurance Scheme'. The Scheme is 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.
Who is responsible for implementing KUCAS?
The Public Authority for Industry for the State of Kuwait (PAI) has implemented the 'Kuwait Conformity Assurance Scheme' (KUCAS) as of 17 June 2006.

How does the inspections process work?
Exporter would need to undergo inspection in the country of export by the same CIB (Certification/Inspection Body ) who had issued the TER. Inspection and testing (based on risk assessment and type of product) would be conducted prior to shipment by the relevant CIB.
Importers are required to submit the TIR to the KUCAS Conformity Unit who would then be able to verify the validity of both TIR and TER through their database which is constantly updated with the data transferred.
