Certificate of Conformity mandatory for Exports to Kenya of Medical Devices, Food Supplements, Medical Cosmetics, Herbal Products and other Healthcare Borderline products
Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) PVoC Enforcement for Medical Devices, Food Supplements, Medical Cosmetics, Herbal Products and other Healthcare Borderline products exported to Kenya.
Intertek is accredited by KEBS to issue the Certificates of Conformity needed for customs clearance and in order to assure Kenyan consumers of the safety and total quality of the imported goods they buy.
To protect the public against imported products that do not comply with local quality standards and technical regulations, ALL Imported Medical Devices, Food Supplements, Medical Cosmetics, Herbal Products and Other Allied Healthcare Borderline Products falling under the regulated mandate of Pharmacy and Poisons Board MUST now comply with Pre-Export Verification of Conformity (PVoC) to Standards programme implemented by KEBS (Kenya Bureau of Standards).
This new requirement is effective for all goods arriving as from 01st September 2017.
Exporters of these products are therefore required to obtain Certificates of Conformity (CoC) for their shipments from a KEBS approved PVoC agent, such as Intertek, for customs clearance purposes.
