A bill of lading and an invoice must accompany all goods entering Gabon.  Import permits and sanitary certificates are required for farm produce (including meat and poultry), and permits must also be secured for hazardous products (weapons, explosives, chemical products).  Gabon does not require an import license for other products.  As of February 2016, a certificate of conformity is required for regulated goods.  A list of regulated goods can be found at Intertek’s website at  https://www.intertek.com/government/certificate-of-conformity-for-exports-to-gabon. Intertek, a private company, is an authorized provider of certificates of conformity.
