Trouble-free Tanzanian Trade: PVoC services and eTrade solutions

PCA Newsletters15 Mar 2023

As PVoC providers for Tanzania since 2012, SGS offers experience, expertise and digital innovation for exporters.

From the breath-taking Serengeti to the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania encompasses the warm heart of Africa.

Located in East Africa, Tanzania is known for its vast natural resources, including minerals and agricultural products. In recent years, its economy has grown rapidly driven not only by the export of these resources, but also driven by the growth of its manufacturing and service sectors.

Product Verification of Conformity program

Launched in February 2012, SGS has always been at the forefront of providing Product Verification of Conformity Program (PVoC) services for the country. Today we are the first choice for exporters who benefit from our global network of specialists and state-of-the-art facilities. The zones under which we are mandated to conduct PVoC are extensive; full details can be found on our datasheet which provides a useful guide to all PVoC-related matters.

With the increase in the number of zones under mandate to SGS, webinars were held in December 2022 and February 2023 to provide more details.

SGS has a presence in all East African countries and has operated in Tanzania since the 1950s. The knowledge gained over so many years interacting with a wide diversity of products and organizations makes us an ideal partner for exporters to Tanzania.
