The Gabonese authority has requested Bureau VERITAS, as part of the implementation of the “PROGEC”, to apply the new provisions to better respond to the main objectives targeted by the PVoC, mainly consumer & Environment Protection, and conformity assurance.
The new provisions include:
- Extension of the list of products, where all the products imported into Gabon will be subject to PROGEC except food products and a few exceptions. (See details on the downloadable datasheet on Verigates)
- The minimum value of goods subject to PROGEC is now EUR 1,000.
These provisions are applicable from September 16th, 2020 “shipping date”, where the CoC is compulsory for products subject to the PROGEC.
