About The PROGEC Process

The Agence Gabonaise de Normalisation (AGANOR) has implemented a new product Conformity Assessment Programme for the control of regulated products imported to Gabon.

The objective of the PROGEC is to ensure that all imports of regulated products comply with the approved Gabonese technical regulations, (i.e. Gabonese or other approved international standards), prior to shipment.

The Agence Gabonaise de Normalisation (AGANOR) is mandated to undertake measures for quality control of products and to promote standardisation in industry and commerce.

The requirements for CAP include:

  • Every consignment of imported goods which contains regulated products must be accompanied by a Certificate of Conformity issued by Intertek.
  • The Certificate of Conformity is required to ensure smooth Customs clearance of shipments in Gabon.
  • The Certificate of Conformity confirms that the products comply with the relevant Gabon technical regulations and approved standards.
  • The authorities in Gabon may take random samples from imported consignments to verify compliance.
  • Additional details on the CAP procedure and a list of Regulated Products currently requiring Conformity Certification are available from the Resources section of this website.
  • Intertek is authorised by AGANOR to issue the mandatory Certificates of Conformity to exporters.
