Certificate of Conformance Document (requires Adobe Acrobat)
A Certificate of Conformance (CofC) is required by the US Government Contracts under which FDI makes all purchases from Manufacturers, OEMs, Distributors, and Suppliers.
The purpose of a Certificate of Conformance is to have an authorized representative of the source of supply certify that the parts ordered are correct, and conforming to the drawings. This certificate helps prevent fraudulent supply of imitation parts, helps suppliers re-confirm part numbers and purchase order provisions, and prevent errors.
Many suppliers have an acceptable CofC pre-printed on their packing slips, while others supply a separate certificate page. Either way, the signature of an authorized company representative is required, whether original signature or pre-printed as a part of your company’s shipping documentation forms.
Complete, sign, and return the document to Matt Cooper, Order Expediter Via E-Mail: MCooper@fedef.com
