A Certificate of Compliance (COC)

A Certificate of Compliance (COC)


is a document that certifies that a product complies with applicable technical standards, regulations and requirements. A COC is usually issued by an accredited testing laboratory or certification body that has tested and inspected the product.


A COC usually contains the following information:

Name of the manufacturer or supplier of the product

Description of the product and related standards and regulations

Inspection and test results, including data and test records

Date and place of issuance of the certificate


Signature and stamp of the accredited testing laboratory or recognized certification body.


A COC is an important proof for the manufacturer or supplier that the product complies with the applicable requirements. In many countries, especially in the European Union, a COC is mandatory for certain product categories to ensure product safety and quality.


For online retailers selling products in different countries, a COC can be an important part of the approval and licensing processes to ensure that their products comply with applicable standards and regulations and that no legal or regulatory issues arise.
