Certificate of Analysis Document Generation

What is a Certificate of Analysis?

A Certificate of Analysis, also known as a COA document, typically contains test results performed as part of a manufacturer's quality control process. The documents attest or affirm that the finished product or raw material meets the QC requirements established and maintained within the ERP system. Deacom's ERP software simplifies and automates the generation of these documents for process manufacturers who require them as part of their business operations.

Capabilities within the software include:



  • Configure and include any number of customer required data points on the COA documents. These can include, but are not limited to: customer name, product description, product ID, lot number, batch number, manufacture date, and expiration date.
  • Generate COA documents on-demand at the time of shipment.
  • Establish any number of standardized certificate of analysis templates along with customer and/or product specific formats.
  • Automatically print customer specific formatting requirements on the COA documents based on the document selected in the customer master record.
  • Enforce signature requirements of the quality control team member and print the signature directly on the COA document.
  • Automatically include the test results of raw materials used in the manufacturing process for those customers that require they be present on the COA.
  • For those customers who have tighter quality specifications than the standard, DEACOM will only allow warehouse employees to pick lots that meet these quality specifications. The COA document will contain the actual results and compare them to the customer specific results established at the customer part cross reference level.
