Trade Ivory Coast – Verification of Conformity (VOC)
Import products to Ivory Coast with SGS’s product conformity assessment services.
Effective 1 July 2019, all regulated materials and products imported to Ivory Coast must be assessed and conform to the requirements of MCAPPME Conformity Assessment Programme (VOC). This means that all products destined for import to Ivory Coast must be assessed and issued with a Certificate of Conformity.
Depending on the certification route we provide one, or a combination, of the following interventions:
- Physical inspection prior to shipment
- Sampling, testing and analysis in accredited or non-accredited laboratories, including manufacturers’ in-house laboratories
- Audit of product manufacturing processes
- Documentary check and assessment of conformity with the requirements of the applicable standards
Ivory Coast’s conformity assessment programme protects local consumers by ensuring that all regulated products and materials imported to the country meet the relevant approved standards and technical regulations.
