Morocco Verification of Conformity Program

To protect the consumers in Morocco from substandard products and to assure that safe and quality products enter the Moroccan market, the Moroccan Ministry of Industry, Trade, Green and Digital Economy (MICEVN) implemented a Verification of Conformity (VoC) Program with effect from 1st February 2020, in line with law 09-24 and decrees No. 212-02 and No. 13-3873. The VoC program requires that consignments falling under the list of regulated products are accompanied by a Certificate of Conformity to prove compliance to Morocco’s national quality & safety regulations.

TÜV Rheinland is an authorized inspection body for the newly implemented Moroccan VoC program by MICEVN to issue Certificates of Conformity. We are a recognized partner accredited to provide you reliable services relating to VoC Certification which will help you confidently place your products in the Moroccan market.
