Importers starting January 1, 2021, will be paying revised fees and charges for registration purposes to the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA).
This is according to a letter signed by the Authority’s Director-General, Professor Alex Dodoo, and sighted by norvanreports.
According to the Authority, the new fees and charges were approved by Parliament in 2019 for implementation in 2020, but has however, been delayed by the Authority.
The approved fees and charges involve a 20 per cent upward review of existing fees and charges as well as the introduction of new fees and charges.
The GSA is the government agency responsible for developing and promoting standards in the country through standardisation and conformity assessment activities such as testing, inspecting as well as certifying products or services produced in Ghana for either local consumption or export, ensuring they are safe, reliable and of good quality.
