Zambia RWI


This contracted assignment with the Zambia Bureau of Standards involves the conducting of pre- export road worthiness inspection of used motor vehicles from Japan, UK, Singapore, Dubai and other Global origins, destined for use within the Republic of Zambia.
This enables only roadworthy and environmentally friendly vehicles to enter the country, thereby ensuring that Zambia does not become a dumping ground for poor quality used vehicles.
Right-hand drive vehicles are allowed into Zambia. While there is currently no age restriction for used vehicles imported into Zambia, a pre-shipment roadworthiness inspection is required for all imports.

EAA Company Limited has been contracted to ZABS as an authorized inspection agency for the pre-shipment inspection for roadworthiness of used vehicles. This inspection has been initiated by ZABS to minimize the risk of unsafe and substandard vehicles entering the Zambia market, thus ensuring health, safety and environmental protection for Zambians. All used vehicles must meet the requirements of this important safety Pre-export inspection. Please ensure inspections are completed prior to export.
