Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, has extended its contract with the Tanzania Bureau of Standards to continue to support its Pre-Shipment Verification of Conformity (PVoC) programme for exports to the country.
The PVoC was implemented by TBS to verify the quality and safety of all regulated products being exported to Tanzania in the country of supply. This ensures they comply with the applicable Tanzanian technical regulations and quality standards, assuring Tanzania's citizens of the quality and reliability of imported goods.
Thomas Kordick, Global Business Line Leader, Government and Trade Services, Intertek said: “We are delighted to continue to work with TBS in supporting them with the PVoC and contributing to its success, giving Tanzania’s consumers the assurance they need when buying imported goods and protecting them from sub-standard products. Having introduced the very first Conformity Assessment Programme in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia more than 25 years ago, Intertek has the experience and expertise to provide TBS, and exporters to Tanzania, with a rapid and excellent service.”
Exporters to Tanzania are required to provide a Certificate of Conformity for Customs clearance in accordance with Government regulations. This certificate can only be obtained from a TBS Accredited Partner such as Intertek.
Intertek are the pioneers of Conformity Assessment programmes and with our network of more than 1,000 laboratories and offices and over 43,800 people in more than 100 countries, delivers innovative and bespoke Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification solutions for our customers’ operations and supply chains.
