A product conformity assessment (PCA) 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.

What are the benefits of a product conformity assessment from SGS?
PCA and verification of conformity services help trade facilitation and protect 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 that their goods are rejected at the country of destination because of non-compliance with the requirements.
