Trade Ministry Begins Solar Product Inspection Regime

The Ministry of Trade & Regional Integration has begun a regime for the inspection of imported solar products. In partnership with the Ethiopian Standards Agency, two international companies - Bureau Veritas and Cotecna - were hired to conduct the pre-shipment inspections. The two firms had signed an agreement with the Ministry at the end of last month, after winning an international tender for the inspection services. Officials say the international inspectors were hired because the inspection process is time-consuming and the country lacks adequate inspection facilities. Any importer bringing in solar products will henceforth be obliged to attain standard licensing from the two international inspectors.
