In order to reinforce regime of conformity of goods to approved standards and prevent mis-declaration and undervaluation of goods at the border, Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), together with Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), introduced complete coverage of all imported goods by PVoC.

The following goods are exempt from PVoC:

  • Raw materials for further processing into finished products
  • Spare parts for own use by manufacturers
  • Customized machinery not meant for sale

KEBS and KRA stress that presentation of Certificate of Conformity shall be a mandatory requirement for clearance of goods by the two agencies.

Current PVoC product list is no longer in force.
