PVoC stands for Pre-Shipment Verification of Conformity. It is a service that ensures imported goods meet the required standards and regulations of the importing country.
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.
A Certificate of Conformity (CoC) is issued by TÜV Rheinland if the products are confirmed as compliant. The CoC is used at Uganda customs points to clear the shipment.
The certificate of conformity (CoC) is a document that verifies that imported goods are in line with the applied regulations and standards of the destination country.
TÜV Rheinland PVoC services provide assurance that imported goods meet the necessary standards and regulations, which can prevent delays in customs clearance and potential fines or penalties.
