Since 1st March 2016, exports of certain products to Zimbabwe require a “Certificate of Conformity” that is issued by Bureau Veritas. This measure has come into effect under the Consignment Based Conformity Assessment (CBCA) Programme which aims to ensure that imported products meet quality, safety, health and environmental standards in line with the World Trade Organisation agreements. The complete list of products regulated under the Programme is available here and includes food & agricultural products, petroleum & fuels, electronic goods and toys amongst others.
The programme is being enforced by the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority, Standards Association of Zimbabwe, and Bureau Veritas officials through Statutory Instrument 132 of 2015. The official notice can be accessed on this link.
