As of January, 24, 2019, KEBS (Kenya Bureau of Standards) will no longer allow cargo in the Kenyan market without a Pre-Export Verification of Conformity to Standards (PVOC). Cargo must be inspected at origin port only. Failure to comply will result in immediate rejection of cargo at the time of discharge, and shipment will be sent back to its origin.

Thank you, Josh and Missionary Expediters! ... See MoreSee Less
