Further to the earlier announcement on 23rd Nov that KEBS demanded PVOC on ALL cargo: after strong protest by the Kenyan Association of Manufacturers, this notice has been severely weakened as per attached letter.
In general, we are more or less where we were before with the the list of HS Codes (re-attached), however we will be pushing for a conformation of which HS Codes require Pvoc.
If your imports are not on the list of HS codes but ALSO not on the list of exclusions on the attached letter, please check with us to be sure.
Note that the stoppage of CFS nomination is also being contested by Kenya Shippers Association and KIFWA. We will revert if any more news on that.
If there is any update to this development, we will circulate it.
