HQTS Quality Control

Iraq Certificate of Conformity

Iraq Certificate of Conformity

Export/Import Goods to Iraq

The Iraqi Central Organization for Standardization and Quality Control (COSQC) now requires a Certificate of Conformity (COC) for over 1,000 products across twelve categories. Exporters/Importers trading with Iraq must comply with the Iraqi regulations to avoid delays, penalties, or shipments being returned. HQTS is one of the four appointed companies by the COSQC licensed to provide this service, ensuring hassle-free export and compliance with the Iraqi customs regulations.

Exporters around the world are taking advantage of Iraq’s demand for imported goods. The country imported over $46 billion worth of goods in 2020. This number is expected to grow in the upcoming years as it generates wealth from foreign exports and continues its ongoing reconstruction plans. Let HQTS be your one-stop shop for all your COC Iraq needs!
