December 07, 2011
Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide range of industries around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a 3 year contract with the Government of Tanzania for the provision of Pre-Export Verification of Conformity (PVoC) to Standards services for the Tanzania Bureau of Standards.
The PVoC programme verifies the conformity of all regulated products in the respective exporting countries, ensuring they comply with the applicable Tanzanian technical regulations and quality standards, protecting Tanzania’s citizens from sub standard imported goods and will commence shortly.
David Gregory, Vice President of Intertek’s Government and Trade Services said: “We are delighted to be working with the Government of Tanzania in supporting them with the implementation of the PVoC. Having introduced the very first conformity programme more than 16 years ago, Intertek has the experience and expertise to provide the Government, and exporters to Tanzania, with a rapid and excellent service.”
Jay Gutierrez, Executive Vice President for Government and Trade Services and the Commodities Division, said “Intertek’s global services network, located in over 100 nations, supports this programme, helping the Tanzania government to ensure products imported from around the world are delivered in good order to the people of Tanzania.”
Intertek has pioneered inspection programmes for Governments worldwide and has issued more that 1.5 million test reports and certificates to global exporters to ensure that their goods comply and clear customs smoothly.
