Botswana Import Inspections Regulations (SIIR) to Standards Programme

Exports to Botswana must comply with the requirements of the Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) Import Inspections Regulations (SIIR) to Standards Programme for their goods to clear customs. Intertek has been accredited by BOBS to issue the Certificate of Conformity (CoC).

The Botswana SIIR has been implemented by the Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) to ensure Botswana consumers of the quality and safety of imported goods and to facilitate trade. 'Regulated Products' within the programme exported to Botswana require a Certificate of Compliance which verifies, in the respective countries of export, that the products comply with the applicable Botswana technical regulations and mandatory standards or approved equivalent International/National Standards.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) has accredited Intertek to issue the Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for products regulated within the provisions of the Standards Import Inspection Regulations (SIIR). SIIR has been implemented since 1st April 2009.

Companies exporting regulated products to Botswana can now contact their nearest Intertek Country Office to obtain more information on the programme and also apply for the CoC which will ensure a smooth clearance of shipments at Botswana Customs.
