Tradegood connects responsible buyers and importers with trusted and reliable suppliers from more than 100 countries.

Intertek Government and Trade Services are actively assisting the governments of
Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to certify the products imported into their countries to improve quality and safety through the Pre Export Verification of Conformity (PVoC) to Standards programmes.
Intertek has been declared an Approved Inspection Body, which enables us to issue the mandatory Certificates of Conformity required for customs clearance in these countries.
Tradegood creates buyer and supplier confidence through qualification and verification, and because a Tradegood supplier is reputable and transparent they are best placed to meet the requirements of the Export Verification of Conformity programme and thus be granted the mandatory Certificate of Conformity.
