Container Ships in Trade Port

Get your Certificate of Conformity.

Many countries, including Kenya, require exporters to subject their goods to Pre-Export Verification of Conformity (PVoC) and to obtain a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) before the goods can enter the country. A CoC ensure that the products for export meet government standards that have been put in place to protect the country’s people and its environment.

If you are exporting products to Kenya, or from Kenya to a number of different countries [link to section with cards for the different countries], you will require a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) in order to clear customs. SGS can help you obtain your CoC.
