  Pre- Export Verification of Conformity to Standards Programme (PVoC)

Business Wire

LONDON -- November 08, 2012

Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide
range of industries around the world, has signed a contract with the
Government of Uganda to manage its new Pre- Export Verification of Conformity
to Standards Programme (PVoC) for exports to the country.

The programme verifies the conformity of all regulated products in the
respective exporting countries, ensuring they comply with the applicable
Ugandan technical regulations and quality standards, protecting Uganda’s
citizens from sub standard imported goods.

David Gregory, Vice President of Intertek’s Government and Trade Services,
said: “We are delighted to be working with the Government of Uganda and
supporting them with the implementation of the PVoC. Having introduced the
very first Conformity Assessment Programme in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia more
than 17 years ago, Intertek has the experience and expertise to provide the
Government, and exporters to Uganda, with a rapid and excellent service.”

Intertek has pioneered conformity assessment programmes for Governments
worldwide and has issued more that 1.5 million test reports and certificates
to global exporters to ensure that their goods comply and thus facilitate the
smooth customs clearance upon arrival.
