Intertek signs contract with Government of Tanzania for the provision of PVoC Services
Exporting to Tanzania? The Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) has officially confirmed the requirement of a Certificate of Conformity (COC) in compliance with the new Tanzania-PVoC.
The Executive Director of The Tanzania National Bureau of Standard (TBS) has issued Intertek with an official confirmation of the implementation and enforcement of the Pre-Export Verification of Conformity (PvoC) to Standards Programme.
The PVoC programme covers the verification of all Regulated Products to be in compliance with the Tanzania and other approved standards on the basis of which a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) is issued.
Intertek has been awarded a contract by the TBS to issue this certificate. The programme is scheduled to start shortly.
The CoC is needed to ensure Customs clearance of regulated shipments in Tanzania. Obtaining the CoC also confirms that the products comply with the relevant Tanzanian technical regulations and/or national, regional or international standards. Failure to present this certificate can result in severe delays in Customs clearance, penalities or even shipments being returned to the country of export.
