KENYAN AUTHORITIES IMPLEMENT MANDATORY INSPECTIONS AT ORIGIN

Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS)  has amended requirements for all cargo being imported into the country. Effective 1st October, all cargo entering Kenya will be subject to a mandatory inspection in the country of origin.

Once inspection has been completed, KEBS agents will issue a Certificate of Conformity / Certificate of Roadworthiness. The Certificate of Conformity needs to be submitted PRIOR to stack closure. Any cargo that does not comply to the laws of the KEBS will be destroyed and all costs passed onto the shipper. 

For further information on the new requirements, please go to the KEBS official website: Kenya Bureau of Standards
