Verification of Conformity (VOC) Seminar in Guangzhou, China

Cotecna will be holding a seminar in Guangzhou on 22nd March 2019 to inform export companies in China on the latest regulatory requirements of PVOC programmes in the Middle East and Africa.

With the development of global trade, the exports of Chinese companies to the Middle East, Africa and other markets has continually increased. However, at the same time, an increasing number of governments have also introduced stricter regulations and standard requirements for a wide range of imported products. These regulations and requirements are often made mandatory in “Product Verification of Conformity” (i.e. PVOC / COC) programmes.

As part of our goal to inform and assist export enterprises to keep abreast of the latest regulations and standards in the Middle East and Africa markets, Cotecna will be holding a seminar and training to cover the different Verification of Conformity programmes in the region. The seminar, led by our professional team, will present to you all the latest regulatory requirements and certification skills that you need to know, and will include a question and answer session at the end.

To register for the event, please view the instructions below.
