Uganda’s pre-verification of conformity (PVoC) program ensures that export/import businesses operating in the country adhere to regulatory controls which are designed to keep products safe and fit for purpose. Understanding PVoC procedures and working with a trusted and experienced third-party inspection and certification provider, helps to make the conformity process smoother and speedier.

Our live webinar, ‘Understanding Uganda’s PVoC procedure 2023,’ provides information about this crucial process, helping businesses reduce turnaround times for Certificates of Conformity – so that you can get your products to market more quickly.

To strengthen consumer protection, the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) has put in place an Import Inspection and Clearance Scheme. This scheme requires all imported products which are subject to the provisions of the UNBS Act 1983, to be inspected for conformity to the regulations, before they can be sold in the country.

This complimentary webinar will explore the key benefits available to companies working with SGS to achieve conformity for the goods that are subject to regulatory control. As a PVoC service provider recognized by the Ugandan government, our role is to verify the description, specification, and quantity of goods; and to assess conformity with the relevant Ugandan standards, or their approved international equivalent.

Expert presenter Ferideh Kilii will take webinar attendees through the requirements of the certification process and explain how we can help simplify it, to get products to market without delay. There will also be a Q&A session.
