In an effort to combat the illicit importation goods into the country, Egyptian authorities decreed a set of regulations in March 2016 stipulating that certain imported goods will not legally enter into the market unless the merchandise is authorized by the General Organization for Export and Import Control (GOEIC).

As of January 15, 2019, GOEIC included more goods on the list, as declared in Ministerial Decree no. 44 of 2019. The Decree also confirms the present procedure to obtain authorization. As such, trademark owners are required to record the name of the manufacturer, as well as the corresponding trademark registration of the imported products at GOEIC.
