To safeguard the health and safety of the people of Uganda, protect the environment and ensure asset integrity, the government of Uganda requires that all specialized materials and equipment for oil and gas projects to be imported into the country meet the technical regulations and standards of the Petroleum Authority of Uganda (PAU) and Uganda’s National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) pre-export verification of conformity (PVoC) program.

Under the PVoC program, products must undergo a conformity assessment at the country of origin and be issued a certificate of conformity (CoC) before they can be imported into Uganda. The conformity assessment includes, but is not limited to, physical inspection prior to shipment, sampling, testing in accredited laboratories and document verification. It ensures that the products comply with the applicable PAU standards as well as all other applicable legal and regulatory provisions.

SGS has entered into an agreement with PAU and UNBS to administer the PvOC program for specialized equipment for oil and gas projects to be imported into Uganda. We can issue a certificate of conformity to demonstrate compliance with applicable standards and regulations.
