Certificate of Conformity (CoC)
Pincvision has a partnership with world's leading inspection companies for issuing Certificates of Conformity (CoC) worldwide.
To ensure product safety in the country, an increasing number of governments have drawn up compliance requirements as part of their import requirements. The Product Conformity Assessment (PCA) ensures that products meet the specified requirements (such as technical regulations) for customs clearance of goods in the destination country. Conformity of products is evidenced by the issuance of a Certificate of Conformity (CoC). The CoC is a mandatory document for many customs authorities worldwide.

Product Registration is recommended to exporters with frequent shipments of homogeneous products.
Route C: for licensed products: This route is only open to manufacturers who can demonstrate the existence of a quality management system in their manufacturing/production process. This route involves the audit of any QMS and licensing of products by the authorized inspection company (certified body). This route is recommended for manufacturers with high frequency/volumes of shipments.
