Curious about the standards and certifications your company should consider?
Standards & certifications are important in ensuring the consistent quality and safety of your products and services to the public. They also play a key role in improving your business credibility to both domestic and international markets. For many companies, they are the first step towards international exports.
To understand this complex topic in greater detail, EuroCham Cambodia has partnered with GIZ ARISE+ Cambodia, and the GIZ Business Scouts for Development program to develop the second of our SME Export Talks. Our second event will focus on "Standards & Certification for Export”. The event will be held on Thursday 24 June 2021, at 10:00AM via Microsoft Teams.
The purpose of this event is to introduce companies to the world of standards and certificates. Organisations will be introduced to the types of certifications they should be considering for their products, and the challenges many SMEs may face when obtaining them. Importantly, our experts will also discuss the advantages your company may enjoy once you obtain your first certificate.
Register today, and take one more step towards international export!
