Cameroon to start implementing compliance control on imported goods

The Compliance Prior Loading Evaluation Programme (PECAE in French) for goods imported in the Republic of Cameroon will take effect starting from 31 August 2016, the Minister of Mines, Industry and Technologic Development, Ernest Gbwaboubou, just announced in an official communiqué.

This reform considered as major by the Cameroonian authorities and highly appreciated by local industrials, aims at, Minister Gbwaboubou explains, “strengthening the government policy in terms of quality, to guarantee the health and security of consumers, protect the environment and protect the local industry against imported products and raw materials of poor quality.

In order to implement PECAE, the Cameroonian government chose a consortium of companies gathering the Swiss company SGS and British Intertek International. These certified companies will be in charge of conducting, at the exporters' charge, conformity checks prior loading the goods going to Cameroon, a country still without high-tech laboratories to check the compliance of goods.
