What is Certificate of Inspection?

A Certificate of Analysis (COA) is a document that provides detailed information about the quality and composition of a product. In shipping, a COA is typically used to provide assurance to the buyer that the products being shipped meet certain quality standards and specifications. 


A COA typically includes information about the product’s physical and chemical properties, such as its composition, purity, strength, and identity. It may also include information about any contaminants or impurities that may be present, as well as any specific tests or methods used to analyze the product.
