Kenya's Revenue Authority has instructed shipping lines and air carriers not to accept goods destined for Kenya without a Certificate of Conformity (CoC).

This directive takes effect from January 1 2016. Goods without a CoC, issued by an authorised Kenya Bureau of Standards partner, will not be allowed to offload in Kenya on arrival.

Clarifications on the issue of goods not subject to certification will follow soon. Please send your inquiries to your nearest SGS office (contact list available at Product Conformity Assessment (PCA) page)
