Intertek extends contract with The Government of Ghana for its Conformity Assessment Programme EasyPASS
July 05, 2022
Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, has extended the duration of its contract with the Ghana Standard Authority (GSA) to continue to support its Conformity Assessment Programme EasyPASS in providing certification service to exporters to Ghana.
EasyPASS verifies the conformity of all regulated products in the respective exporting countries ensuring they comply with the applicable Ghanian technical regulations and quality standards, assuring Ghana’s citizens of the quality of imported goods. Intertek has been supporting the programme since 2019.
Thomas Kordick, Global Business Line Leader, Government and Trade Services, Intertek said: “We are delighted to continue to work with GSA in supporting them with the ongoing success of EasyPASS, which gives Ghana’s consumers the assurance they need when buying imported goods and protecting them from sub-standard products. Having introduced the very first Conformity Assessment Programme in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia more than 25 years ago, Intertek has the experience and expertise to provide GSA and exporters to Ghana, with a rapid and excellent service.”
Exporters to Ghana are required to provide a Certificate of Conformity for Customs clearance in accordance with Government regulation. This certificate can only be obtained from an Approved Inspection Body such as Intertek. Intertek is also approved for the Cameroon, Gabon and Ivory Coast programmes, giving exporters to West Africa an ever better service by taking advantage of the synergies of using one provider for their certification needs.
Intertek are the pioneers of Conformity Assessment programmes and with our network of more than 1,000 laboratories and offices and over 44,000 people in more than 100 countries, delivers innovative and bespoke Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification solutions for our customers’ operations and supply chains.
