It may not use them at all anymore. Not a quality issue, just a change in the way they do their paperwork.
As far as the COSC certificate, with the new movements Panerai does not COSC certify their movements any longer. Instead they have their own in-house QC procedures. While some may feel that it's preferable to have an independent agency testing the performance of movements, the COSC procedure has some definite flaws. Chief among them is that it tests movements and not completed watches. Many of the finest watch brands do not use COSC because their in-house standards are more stringent than the COSC requirements.
