Release time:2020-06-24 browse:1108

       Tanzania PVoC/CoC certification profile

       The executive director of Tanzania's national bureau of standards (TBS) has issued an official confirmation that this conformity assessment process (PVOC) can be implemented and implemented.All controlled products covered by PVOC procedures must be inspected for compliance with tanzanian national standards and other recognized standards on the basis of which a product conformity certificate (COC) is issued.

      From February 1, 2012, Tanzania will implement Conformity certification of products - COC, whose name in English is Certificate of Conformity, belongs to pre-shipment inspection.All products listed in the controlled catalogue in Tanzania need to apply for COC before shipment, otherwise they cannot be cleared at the destination port.Different from the previous shipment inspection in Tanzania, the Tanzania COC needs to apply before shipment. Once the goods have left the port, the COC cannot be replenished.In addition, Tanzania COC needs to submit the product test report and other materials for document review. Only after the review is passed can the pre-shipment inspection be arranged and the COC certificate be obtained.

     The certificate of conformity (COC) is the necessary document to ensure the smooth customs clearance of the goods. This certificate certifies that the products comply with relevant tanzanian technical regulations and national, regional and international standards.Failure to submit a conformity certificate issued by the inspection agency may result in customs clearance delays or fines or even goods being returned to the exporting country.
