Uganda PVoC contract awarded for fourth consecutive year to SGS

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is pleased to announce it has, for the fourth consecutive year, been awarded the contract to provide pre-verification of conformity (PVoC) services for Uganda.

Granted by the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS), the new contract starts on March 1, 2023. There is no change to the chargeable fees, which remain consistent with the previous contract and shall apply to all countries of export (net of taxes).

Being awarded the contract for a fourth time is a testament to SGS’s expertise in providing trusted product conformity assessment (PCA) services that facilitate trade while protecting the environment and safeguarding consumers from harmful, substandard products.

The Ugandan PVoC program mandates that products with compulsory standards specification, as guided by the UNBS Act 1983, must be verified as complying with relevant technical regulations, standards and/or approved equivalents. Approved products are issued with a Certificate of Conformity (CoC), which helps facilitate clearance of the certified consignment and allows access to Ugandan markets.

SGS has considerable experience in supporting the trade fraternity – exporters, importers and their appointed clearing and forwarding agents – with guidance and solutions that aid compliance with appliable Ugandan requirements.
