Government Programmes

We are authorised by governments worldwide to help businesses comply with import requirements, get their products certified, and achieve smoother customs clearance.

For over 40 years, Cotecna has been partnering with governments and customs, helping implement programmes that improve security, facilitate trade and fight against fraud.

Businesses that trade in these countries are required to comply with specific requirements in order to pass customs clearance and avoid possible penalties and delays. Depending on the country of import, this can be either an import verification programme or a conformity assessment programme (verification of conformity).

Cotecna can help guide clients through this process and issue any necessary certificates (such as a Certificate of Conformity) in order to ensure product conformity and compliance.

Applicable countries include:


  • Indonesia


  • Philippines
  • R. Congo
  • Senegal
  • Togo


  • Cote d’Ivoire
  • Egypt
  • Sudan
  • Iran
  • Kenya
  • Nigeria
