In order to protect the consumers in Uganda from substandard products and to assure safe and quality approved products entering the Ugandan market, the Uganda National Bureau of Standards has implemented under UNBS Act of 1983 mandatory requirements for product imports under the Pre-Export Verification of Conformity to Standards Programme (PVoC).

The PVoC program requires that regulated product imports are verified for compliance in the country of export and before entering the Ugandan market.
