The Petroleum Authority of Uganda (PAU) has approved SGS, a leading testing, inspection and certification company, to provide pre-export verification of conformity (PVoC) services to exporters of specialist oil and gas materials equipment 

In collaboration with the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS), PAU monitors and regulates the oil and gas industry in the country, implementing quality assurance for specialist equipment and materials based on approved standards and technical regulations.

SGS, meanwhile, boasts many decades of experience operating in Africa, working in countries such as Cameroon, Kenya, Gabon, Egypt, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Tanzania, Morocco, Burundi and more. With this development, the company will now be able to review, inspect and certify regulated products and support exporters and importers throughout the certification process.

This includes physical inspections prior to shipping, sampling and testing in accredited laboratories, and document verification. Successful products are issued a certificate of conformity, demonstrating compliance with applicable standards and regulations prior to shipping.
