SGS will provide product conformity assessment services for products to be shipped to Ivory Coast, effective February 15, 2019.

Our contract with the government of Ivory Coast is aimed at protecting the country and its consumers from products that are substandard or non-compliant.

Via a five year mandate from the government, we will oversee three different certification routes, covering one or a combination of the following:

  • Inspections prior to shipment
  • Sampling, testing and analysis in accredited and non-accredited laboratories, including manufacturer's in-house laboratories
  • Audits of product manufacturing processes
  • Documentary checks and assessments of conformity with the requirements of the applicable standards

SGS is a global leader in inspection, testing and verification services, with extensive experience in managing conformity assessment programs around the world, a worldwide network and a dedicated software platform. We offer exporters efficient and comprehensive solutions to ensure shipments conform to Ivory Coast's requirements.
