Ridley & Partners, Inc. provides comprehensive logistics services throughout Iraq for both our own needs as well as client needs. As such we are completely conversant with Iraq's Pre-Import Inspection, Testing & Certification Program of Goods into the Republic of Iraq (ICIGI) program as it pertains to the following categories of goods:
Electrical and Electronic Products
Vehicle Tires and Parts
Cosmetics, Personal Hygiene Products and Cleaning Agents
Textile and Footwear
Household Burning Fuel Appliances
We have established air, sea, and overland (where applicable) shipping channels with most major international procurement centers including the United States, the United Kingdom, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, China, and other regional and international locations. These services can be door to door where required or door to port of entry.
While the importation of goods into Iraq can seem complex all importations generally utilize the following step-wise approach:
Prior to shipment a country of origin certificate is obtained and certified through the proper local and Iraq governmental channels
Prior to shipment and as required based on the nature of the goods to be imported all third party laboratory testing and certification is performed
Prior to shipment and following any required testing the shipment documentation package is submitted for review to the designated party for issuance of certificates of conformity. This will generally at a minimum include a physical inspection of the goods, to be shipped, by the designated party.
After issuance of the certificate of conformity all documents including the original shipment documents are submitted to the applicable authorities in Iraq for application and issuance of an import permit.
Once the import permit is issued and the shipment has arrived to the port of entry the customs authorities can be approached for clearance of the goods. This may include a customs official value assignment of the goods based on a physical inspection and/or base on a review of the presented importation documentation package.
Once goods are cleared through customs they are shipped overland to their final destination utilizing the most prudent method.
We have experience importing goods through all sea, land, and air ports of entry in both Iraq as well as the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
Additionally, we have experience moving locally procured goods throughout Iraq.
