IMPLEMENTATION OF PRE EXPORT VERIFICATION OF CONFORMITY TO STANDARDS (PVOC) FOR GENERAL GOODS

Zanzibar Bureau of Standards (ZBS) has started inspecting and verifying the quality of all goods destined to Zanzibar in countries of origin prior to shipment from 1st November 2016. This is done under the Pre Export Verification of Conformity to Standards (PVoC) programme.

ZBS wishes to remind all importers and the public in general that all products are required to be inspected for conformity to the requirements of applicable standards and technical regulation before shipment to Zanzibar. The goods which comply with the standard requirements will be issued Certificate of Conformity (CoC).

Starting 15th March 2017, all products which are not accompanied with CoC will be subjected to 15% penalty (CIF value) and then be subjected to Destination Inspection.

Goods that do not comply with the standard requirements will be re- exported to the country of origin or destructed at the owner’s cost.

To avoid this inconvenience, all importers are urged to ensure their goods are verified by one of the following ZBS PVoC partners:

1. Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS)

2. Bureau Veritas (BV)
