We are here to help and examples of our expertise in the area of public sector administration include:

Product Conformity Assessment (PCA)

SGS Product Conformity Assessment (PCA) is a solution designed to ensure that specific products meet the requirements of the technical regulations and standards set by a regulatory authority in the importing country.

Conformity assessment verifies products’ compliance with the requirements of applicable standards and technical regulations. It follows a review by SGS product specialists of reports from verification activities such as laboratory testing, physical inspection and factory audits. Conformity of products is evidenced by the issuance of a Certificate of Conformity (CoC), a document that is mandatory for customs clearance.

We operate PCA services and assist manufacturers and suppliers to achieve compliance of their exports to many countries.

Border Control: Our expertise in public protection through border control is unrivaled. We have installed scanners all over the world and trained personnel to operate them efficiently and effectively. In addition to physical security measures, we can help you with risk profiling and management at ports, airports and land borders. To complete your tailor-made service our local experts can also guide your quality assessments and conduct audits and certification against a broad range of internationally-recognized systems.

E-government: Paper-based systems are increasingly being replaced with electronic and online solutions. Our e-government solutions touch on almost every aspect of everyday life.
