Togo: Importation of goods and services is now subject to quality standards  

(Togo First) - Goods and services imported in Togo are now subject to quality standards. A decree was adopted May 9 in this framework by the minister of trade and industry, Kodjo Adédzé.

Under the new reform, importers must conform to standards related to normalization, certification, accreditation, environmental protection, and quality promotion set in Togo. This is stated in paragraph 7, art. 4 of the n°20096015 framework law of August 12, 2009.

The law indicates that the importer must provide proof of standard conformity. According to experts, the new reform aims at improving imports and protecting consumers.

Concerned business operators have six months to align with the newly-implemented measure says the ministry of trade.
