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.
