About The Programme

The Pre-Export Verification of Conformity (PVoC) was implemented by the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) to ensure the compliance of regulated imported products with the approved Kenyan technical regulations, (i.e. Kenyan or other approved international standards).

It is compulsory to obtain a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for shipments of regulated products exported to Kenya.

The Kenya PVoC programme provides assurance to Kenyan consumers of the quality and safety of imported goods. The programme focuses primarily on safety and quality standards.

Compliance with the relevant Kenyan or approved international/national standards results in the issue of a CoC prior to shipment.
