PVoC (Pre-Export Verification of Conformity) for Exports to Kenya
To assure Kenyan consumers of the safety and quality of the imported goods they buy, and to protect Kenyan manufacturers from unfair competition, the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), a statutory organisation of the government of Kenya, has implemented guidelines called the Pre-Export Verification of Conformity (PVoC) to Standards Programme for exports to Kenya.
In January 2015, Intertek was awarded a further contract by KEBS to operate the PVoC programme on KEBS behalf in regions such as parts of Europe including the UK, North America , Latin America, China Region, Australasia, Western Africa, Indian Subcontinent and the UAE. To see a full list of the distribution of regions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact your local Intertek dedicated Kenya expert whose details can be found in the Kenya PVoC Customer Service Centres list.
