Gabon Certification of Conformity services
Please be informed that AGANOR, the Agence Gabonaise de Normalisation, is presently implementing the Gabon Inspection and Verification of Conformity Program. This program is aimed at ensuring that the products imported into the Gabonese market comply with approved International Standards and Gabonese technical regulations.
For shipments arriving in Gabon as of the 1st of August 2015, a Certificate of Conformity (CoC) will have to be presented at customs clearance. Goods arriving to Gabon without the corresponding CoC cannot be cleared and will not be permitted to enter the country. It is the seller’s responsibility to ensure that the Inspection and Verification of Conformity process has been finalised prior to shipment.
At this stage the following product groups are subject to the program:
• Machines and appliances
• Electrical and electronic equipment
• Chemical Products
• Construction Materials
• Medical devices
• Cosmetics and personal care products
SGS has been authorised by AGANOR to offer Gabon Certification of Conformity services.
To know whether specific products are subject to the program or for any further information please feel free to contact SGS Belgium.
