French term or phrase: TUV or COC
Context: certification programs, I believe they are for software desiging/fine-tuning. TUV is a German certification, and COC is American. Any help will be great. TIA

English translation:Technischer Uberwachungs Verein / Certification of Compliance
Explanation:
The TUV certification is issued by a private company that has been authorized to do so. See the first two web sites below: "TUV Rheinland now offers manufacturers a quicker and cost-effective way to have their products certified for both U.S. and Canadian markets. Because of our recent accreditation by the Standards Board of Canada to test and certify products to Canadian national standards, we can now offer the cTUVus mark that demonstrates compliance for both U.S. and Canadian markets…"

"Certification of Compliance" (also, sometimes, "Certificate of Compliance") is a widely used term through the engineering fields.
Here are a few web sites:
