CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMITY IN RESPECT OF SHIPPING FROM THE USA

A Certificate of Conformity (CoC. Also known as Certificate of Compliance) is a mandatory document which is necessary for Customs clearance of exports from the USA to many countries around the globe.

Many goods are produced in countries where the safety and performance requirements of the importing country or region are not always fully understood. These requirements have been put into place to ensure the safety of importing countries consumers. Unsafe and unreliable products can result in injury, death or damage to property as well as the costs associated with product recalls, compensation claims and the damage to a brand's reputation.
