Morocco Introduces Mandatory Certificate of Conformity for Clothing Fabric Imports

April 05, 2022

Morocco’s Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIC) has added clothing fabrics to its Verification of Conformity (VoC) program.

With immediate effect all clothing fabrics imported to Morocco must obtain a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) before leaving their country of origin.

In March 2022, the MIC announced new measures taken and with effect from March 4, revised the list of products subject to control abroad. This list now includes clothing fabrics – which are now subject to control at origin and the requirements of the NM 09.0.000:2018 Standard, and must obtain a CoC before entering the Moroccan market. The CoC must be presented upon arrival of the goods and is required for customs clearance.

SGS has been appointed by Morocco’s Ministry of Industry and Trade to implement the VoC program for industrial products. Our service verifies that products comply with the applicable local standards and/or technical regulations in force and issues a CoC as proof of satisfactory results.

Kingdom of Morocco VoC program

Launched in 2020, Morocco’s VoC program requires that industrial products imported to the Kingdom of Morocco demonstrate compliance with the country’s national regulations for product quality and safety, to protect consumers from substandard goods. Depending on the products, the verification shall take place either at the country of export, before shipment of the goods, or at destination, upon arrival of the cargo.
