What's KUCAS mean?
The Public Authority for Industry of the State of Kuwait (PAI) has implemented the ‘Kuwait Conformity Assurance Scheme’ (KUCAS) as of 17 June, 2006.
The scheme is a set of procedures carried out by PAI to verify the conformity of all ‘Regulated Products’ to Kuwait’s Technical Regulations applicable to imported and domestic products alike in accordance with the regulations of this scheme.
Require For KUCAS
All the products listed in Appendix A are subject to the technical requirements and Kuwaiti Standards that have been adopted as mandatory Technical Regulations for the protection and safety of the Kuwaiti consumer and prevention of deceptive practices, in accordance with the ‘Standards Unification Law’ which grants PAI the authority for preparation, adoption and application of standards for all products on the Kuwaiti market. These Regulated Products have been classified into (2) classes:
Process Manufactured Products
These products are characterized by susceptibility to change in their final nature as a result of probable
changes in the nature of the raw materials used and the manufacturing process controls,whereby production is organized in batches. As such, these products are classified as high risk products requiring frequent verification of conformity.
Non-Process Manufactured Products
These products are characterized by low probability of change in the nature of the final product in comparison with a ‘typical’ sample of that product, thereby allowing for low frequency of testing for verification of conformity.
