The Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) has announced that from January 1, 2023, all used vehicles imported into the country without a Certificate of Conformance would not be cleared.
A valid Certificate of Conformance shows the degree to which used cars entering Ghana meet GSA requirements.
The GSA said a valid certificate must therefore conform with its requirements for used vehicles or the “GS 4510:2022 Road vehicles” standard.
“Enforcement of this aspect of the law shall ensure improved safety, quality and asset value of used vehicles imported into Ghana, while sustaining the value chain of the used vehicle industry,” the GSA said in a statement.
