This report provides updates on Government of Kenya (GOK) technical import requirements and regulations for food and agricultural products. It includes applicable laws and guidelines, import procedures, and contact details of key trade regulatory and specialist agencies. Kenya maintains an import ban on genetically engineered (GE) agricultural and food products. In addition, all exports to Kenya must be inspected by an agent of the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) in the country of origin or supply and be issued with a certificate of conformity (CoC) prior to shipment. Both requirements are barriers to U.S. agricultural and food exports to Kenya.
