Raw & Packaging Materials

Lot release of raw materials must be according to :-

1- ANNUAL PRODUCTION PLAN:


Every year, each company must produce its production plan to importation department for revision, approval and legalization. This plan considers the raw materials that the company attend to import them allover the year and their quantities too. 
In lot release department, we take this annual production plan as a reference. The raw material that the company imports must be the same in both the invoice & the annual production plan.

N.B. This annual production plan is usually legalized only for production companies

2- RAW MATERIAL IMPORTATION APPROVAL:


We need this importation approval in case of:- a) Raw material traders b) Toll companies c) Raw materials that are not included in the annual importation plan for producing companies. In these cases the company must obtain an importation approval before the charge then when the raw material arrives to Egypt, lot release is done according to the importation approval that the company obtained.

3- FREE SAMPLES:


The samples in the raw material invoice is so little, then no need for importation approval but only the company should mention the reason of importation
e.g. :- 
•Research in the factory: the company must mention the place where the
  research is done. 
•NODCAR needs
•Registration purposes
