Product Conformity Assessment (PCA)

SGS Product Conformity Assessment (PCA) is a solution designed to ensure that specific products meet the requirements of the technical regulations and standards set by a regulatory authority in the importing country.

Conformity assessment verifies products’ compliance with the requirements of applicable standards and technical regulations. It follows a review by SGS product specialists of reports from verification activities such as laboratory testing, physical inspection and factory audits. Conformity of products is evidenced by the issuance of a Certificate of Conformity (CoC), a document that is mandatory for customs clearance.

We operate PCA services and assist manufacturers and suppliers to achieve compliance of their exports to many countries including Algeria, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Nigeria, Russia, Saudi Arabia and others.

An SGS Product Conformity Assessment prevents the importation of unsafe, substandard or counterfeit goods; it supports government authorities to enforce the implementation of obligatory legislations established for the protection of consumers’ health and safety and the environment.

Product Conformity Assessment helps trade facilitation and protects the interests of traders:  importers benefit from a faster customs clearance process because verification activities have been completed
prior to shipment, and exporters do not take the risk to have their goods rejected at the country of destination because of non compliance with the requirements.
