Some clients have asked us “what is a certificate of conformity” over the years, và we wrote this article lớn answer that question.

Please note, we wrote the article only from the perspective sầu of buying a batch of products from a supplier in China/Vietnam/Thailand/India và necessitating a COC. It does NOT include motor vehicles.This article is for informative sầu purposes only and unfortunately we will not be able to respond to queries about CoCs.

What Is a certificate of conformity?

A certificate of conformity, or CoC, is issued by an authorized buổi tiệc nhỏ (sometimes the manufacturer, sometimes an independent laboratory) and states that the product meets the required standards or specification.

The CoC can either be requested by a buyer to lớn ensure the sản phẩm being manufactured has been tested & passes the set criteria within a specification & meets both technical and safety requirements,or it would be a mandatory requirement as stated by country regulations and law for certain products, such as Bluetooth devices being sold in the USA.

Note: we are NOT covering the case of motor vehicles in this article.

When does a buyer ask the supplier for a CoC?

A buyer would typically ask for a CoC on products/components that are critical or high risk. And, in some cases, specific documents are required for certification or lớn show the kết thúc user/customer, that the hàng hóa is safe.

Let’s take an example. An airline buys fan blades for their planes’ engines. These cast blades have sầu lớn be x-ray checked lớn ensure no voids or cracks are evident. A defect can lead lớn a failure that might result in loss of life. Therefore, a CoC (whereby the blade manufacturer writes that the blades conform to specific checklists) must be provided.

In some cases, it has to be provided for EVERY part with its own serial number. In other cases, batch CoC would be good enough.

What about the cases where a CoC is requested by a country’s Customs?

Certain countries request a CoC for certain categories of imported products.

The CoC is sometimes called Certificate of Conformance or Certificate of Compliance. It is generally inspected during customs clearance if the product being imported requires it. Without a CoC, products may be impounded, confiscated, và in some case destroyed.

The main reason a CoC is required at customs is to prove sầu a sản phẩm that the product being imported meets the required standard(s).
