South Africa – the regional hub for export of goods into Botswana, Gabon, Mozambique and Uganda supported by Intertek Johannesburg

Exporting from South Africa? Many governments within the African continent have now implemented Pre-Shipment Inspection, Destination Inspection, Conformity Assessment or Pre-Export Verification of Conformity (PVoC) to Standards programmes to ensure their consumers are protected from sub-standard products and goods. Exports to these countries require a certificate of conformity or inspection to clear customs.

South Africa, as the regional hub for exports to the region, has a growing share of this market, and as such traders exporting to these countries need to be fully aware of applicable requirements.

Intertek has been working with exporters in South Africa for more than 17 years and continues to be committed to offering an increasingly wider range of services as well as the high standard of customer experience our clients have come to expect. Intertek has a highly experienced and knowledgeable team based in Johannesburg who are dedicated to helping exporters make the most of global export opportunities.

Intertek Johannesburg can also support exporters to Egypt, Kuwait, QatarRussia, Saudi Arabia, The Philippines, and Uzbekistan with the necessary inspections and certificates for Customs clearance.

As an Accredited Certification Body Intertek has been assessed and approved by the applicable government departments in the importing countries meaning that we are competent to test and certify your shipments before they are shipped. We have issued millions of certificates and test reports and exporters can be confident that an Intertek certificate will aid Customs clearance.
