Export Conformity Tests

Export Conformity Tests

The export conformity certificate is a certificate issued to products that meet the minimum safety, regulatory and technical requirements. Before issuing a certificate of conformity for the products to be exported, it must be tested and verified that these products are in compliance with the relevant standards and regulations and meet the necessary requirements. The issue of export compliance differs from country to country of export. For this reason, the companies that send products to the international markets should be aware of the different standards and legal regulations that they must comply with. An export conformity certificate is often required to allow products to pass through customs in a particular country and be made available to consumers in that country.

Export compliance is generally determined by measurement, test, analysis, inspection, supervision and evaluation activities of third party organizations which act impartially and independently.

A certificate of conformity (CoC, Certificate of Compliance) is a document proving that the products loaded for export comply with the specifications, the relevant standards and the legal regulations in force between the parties. However, this document must be supported by test and analysis documents. Export conformity tests are performed for this purpose.

Today, many countries require a product conformity assessment certificate for products to be sent to their countries within the framework of their legal regulations. On the basis of these demands, in order to protect the health and safety of its citizens and to ensure the quality of products to be offered to consumers, it applies a pre-shipment Verification of Conformity (PVoC) program to these products. This program also aims to protect the natural environment.

Within the framework of this program, it is necessary to carry out test and analysis procedures and physical inspections of products before shipment and to prepare conformity certificates by the authorized institutions.

Nowadays, countries such as Algeria, Burundi, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gabon, India, Kenya, Kuwait, Mongolia, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Uganda, Cote d'Ivoire, Cameroon and Zenzibar are implementing this program and sending products to their countries. conformity tests.

These programs are established with the authorities and standard-setting bodies of each country. Algeria, for example, has been looking for a certificate of conformity issued by a competent authority for some products to be shipped to their countries since 2009 in order to prove their suitability.

Similarly, in Saudi Arabia, compliance with the customs standards is made at the time of entry of certain products in accordance with the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO) decisions that set national standards. The SASO certification process operates differently depending on the type of products exported. In this process, product inspection, inspection of production processes, laboratory measurement, test and analysis and document control are performed. For example, companies producing electronic devices, cosmetics, toys, tools and furniture must obtain a SASO certificate.

Another export conformity tests are carried out for the CE marking application. The CE mark is an important mark that guarantees the conformity of the products to the European Union directives. In particular, the enterprises that will export to the European Union countries must comply with the principles regarding CE marking application. This applies only to products covered by the relevant directives. Separate directives have been issued for product categories. Furthermore, the conformity process is included in these directives.
