The African market is growing - take advantage of the untapped sales opportunities and good earning prospects. We will test your products for compliance with regulations in Algeria and South Africa.

Most imports to Algeria require a certificate of compliance, the so-called certificat de contrôle de qualité de la marchandise. As an independent testing agency, we will confirm the scope of your delivery, as well as its compliance with the Algerian standards. This certificate of conformity is valid for one delivery only. It is assigned a unique invoice number to avoid confusion. We will gladly oversee a product check before shipping - even at short notice. This final inspection is required for certification. We will naturally also inspect the contents of multiple deliveries. Other documents required for imports include the certificat d'origine, issued by your local chamber of commerce, or the certificat phytosanitaire, which applies to goods in the food industry.

South Africa

Safety and EMC inspections are mandatory for most electrical consumer goods imported to South Africa. Let us help you with your exports to South Africa. We will support you by the export to South Africa and submit in your order the Letter of Authority - a special credit required by customs. We can also issue safety approval according to guidelines established by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS). This "Certificate of Conformance" proves the compliance of your products with recognized international standards.
