The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) has warned Kenyans against importing used Australian vehicles from Dubai citing lack of de-registration certificates.

Kebs managing director Charles Ongwae

In a press statement, the agency, which is responsible for governing and maintaining the standards and practices of metrology in the country, has stated that vehicles which lack certificates from Dubai will no longer be allowed in the country.

“It has come to our notice that most used Australian vehicles imported from Dubai do not have deregistration certificates from the government authorities in Australia.

"We have further established that some of these vehicles were actually exported to Dubai as accident cars, having been written off in Australia only to be repaired and sold to the unsuspecting buyers,” part of the statement read.

Kebs announced that it would inspect all used vehicles from Dubai and issue certificates of roadworthiness.

“We, therefore, wish to notify members of the public that importation of used vehicles without original deregistration certificates from Australia shall not be allowed into the Country” the statement adds.
