Expanded Tanzania Trade Facilitation Services from SGS

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, announces expanded pre-verification of conformity (PVoC) services for Tanzania.

Market opportunities in Tanzania have increased in response to the rapid growth of its economy in recent years. With advances in technology presenting new opportunities for speeding up trade, businesses keen to sell products in the country still need to ensure that regulatory requirements are met in a trusted and expedient way.

SGS has been helping businesses in Tanzania since the 1950s, and since February 2012, has provided approved PVoC services. Appointed by the Tanzania Bureau of Standards to run the latest 24-month PVoC program from August 2022, there are now more zones than ever mandated to SGS. This greater geographical spread makes SGS the ideal partner for export and import businesses in the country , and was detailed in webinars held in December 2022 and February 2023.

In addition to this, SGS has led the way in technological innovation, enabling clients to access state-of-the-art digital solutions which ease the passage of goods compliantly and securely. e-Trade is a cloud-based trade facilitation platform with many benefits, including full integration with the SGS exporter portal.

Certification timelines can be much reduced, leading to improved productivity. Using standard Cloud Blocks and Microservices Architecture, security is ensured via the latest frameworks and aligned with Open Web Application Security Projects (OWASP) guidelines. For further protection, the latest Azure Active Directory with user authentication, is utilized.
