Certificate of Analysis/Inspection

where certain goods, for example food and medicine, must meet legal quality standards for sale in a given country, the importer or the customs of the importing country may require such certificates as evidence of the requisite quality or conformity. If such a certificate is likely to be required it is important to include its provision as an obligation in relevant supply contracts, especially where third party certification is required as this will typically have a cost associated with it.
