KEBS Warns Public Against Importing Used Australian Vehicles from Dubai

The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), a government agency responsible for governing and maintaining the standards and practices of metrology in the country has warned Kenyans against importing used Australian vehicles vehicles from Dubai.

In a notice put in the local dailies on Tuesday April 4th, the agency noted; “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.” KEBS said in a statement.

“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” it added.
