Sudan (SSMO)

Cotecna SudanCotecna is certified as an international surveyor, under Article (5) of the Constitutional Law of The Sudanese Standards and Metrology Organization (SSMO), to inspect, test and verify goods imported by Sudan. Cotecna’s mission is to verify that the goods are compliant with the relevant SSMO standards or the international standards recognized by the Republic of Sudan. Based on this verification, Cotecna issues an Inspection Certificate (IC) which is presented by the importer or exporter to the Sudanese / SSMO authorities.

Certification process

According to SSMO, the exporter has two options to be chosen for the verification processes of imported goods into Sudan.

Consignment inspection and testing - If no recognized test
reports can be provided, then samples shall be taken from the
consignments and their compliance shall be verified against the
essential requirements of the appropriate standards.
• Registration, inspection and random testing - When a recognized
test report is available, Cotecna will evaluate the test report, perform
consignment inspection and undertake, at random intervals, testing
to the essential requirements of the appropriate standards.
• Product licensing - When a recognized test report is available
and the product is manufactured under a recognized quality
management system, Cotecna will evaluate the test report and
undertake, at random intervals, consignment inspection and
testing to the essential requirements of the appropriate standards.

A. Inspection and testing (unique method for bulk/commodities shipments)

Cotecna will organize the following:

  • Physical inspection of the consignment
  • Samples testing: samples are drawn by Cotecna during the inspection of the shipment or under Cotecna supervision at the manufacturer's premises and will be tested as per applicable standards in accredited laboratory in order to demonstrate the conformity of the goods with the relevant standards.

B. Inspection

  • Expoter submits test reports
  • Test reports must be issued by an accredited laboratory (ISO 17025 or national equivalent)
  • Cotecna will perform a physical inspection of the consignment
