SGS announces complimentary webinar for importers/exporters involved in trade with Uganda

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has announced a free webinar aimed at importers, exporters, freighter forwarders and consolidators involved in trade with Uganda.

Uganda’s pre-export verification of conformity (PVoC) program protects consumers from substandard products that may endanger human health and the environment. It ensures products entering the country conform to compulsory standards, technical regulations and/or approved equivalents. Once a product is deemed compliant, it is issued with a Certificate of Conformity (CoC), which enables Customs clearance for the certified consignment. Operators who fail to comply with pre-export verifications procedures risk delays, noncompliance and penalties.

SGS has recently been awarded its fourth consecutive contract to provide PVoC services by the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS); coming into force on March 1, 2023. Their product conformity assessment (PCA) services help facilitate trade in compliant products and protect Ugandan markets and consumers.

Led by industry expert Hellen Achieng, the complimentary webinar is being held on April 18, 2023, and will cover the SGS PVoC program and related procedures, penalties and the responsibilities of exporters, importers and inspection companies. It will also look at how to submit a CoC request through the Uganda Electronic Single Window.
