What Is the Certificate of Conformity?

Person searching Certificate of conformity.

When buying scientific or electronic items, especially imports from the EU or US, it’s important to ensure they meet quality and safety standards. A Certificate of Conformity (CoC) confirms that a product meets the required standards, including the products and their labels.

The CoC varies based on safety regulations in the US or EU. An authorized party or lab typically issues it. It lists safety rules the product follows, like batch number, contact info, and CE mark. Customs clearance and ensuring safety and quality standards depend crucially on these certificates.
