SGS to Implement PCA Program in Niger
SGS has been appointed by L'Agence National de Verification de Confomite aux Normes (AVCN) for the implementation of the Niger Product Conformity Assessment (PCA) program.
From June 25, 2018, all products exported to Niger must be assessed against local and/or regional standards and a Certificate of Conformity must be issued to demonstrate product compliance.
The Niger PCA program protects local consumers by ensuring that all regulated products and raw materials imported into the country meet the relevant approved standards and technical regulations.
Depending on the certification route, SGS will provide one or a combination of the following interventions:
- Remote physical inspection prior to shipment
- Sampling, testing and analysis in accredited laboratories
- Auditing of product manufacturing processes
- Documentary checks and assessment of conformity with the requirements of the applicable standards
