"Kenya Trade Network Agency (KenTrade) is a state corporation established in January 2010 under the National Treasury to implement, operationalize and manage the National Electronic Single Window System(Kenya TradeNet System) and to facilitate trade. Kenya TradeNet is an online platform that serves as a single entry point for parties involved in international trade and transport logistics to lodge documents electronically for processing, approvals and to make payments electronically for fees, levies, duties and taxes due to the government, on goods imported/ exported into and from the country.
In compliance with article 1.2 of the World Trade Organization's Trade Facilitation Agreement, the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Cooperatives, through National Trade Facilitation Committee (NTFC) has developed the Information for Trade in Kenya Portal also known as the InfoTradeKenya Portal. The Portal is a web based platform, implemented by KenTrade in partnership with United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and Trade Mark East Africa (TMEA), on which the Government has published trade regulatory information from all government offices, ministries and agencies that impose controls on trade. The Portal continues to publish the current trade regulations including but not limited to administrative procedures, agencies to visit, results or outcomes, forms, requirements, licenses, permit, penalties applicable in case of breach, applicable fees, duration of each procedure and laws that justify the procedure and its contents.
The main benefits of the InfoTradeKenya Portal are:
- Provide current, potential and other stakeholders with total transparency on rules and procedures pertaining to import and export formalities through detailed, practical and up to date description of steps to go through, as seen from the userís point of view.
- Facilitate the simplification of procedures by enabling easy identification of unnecessary steps and requirements.
- Reduce the cost, time and effort spent in search of trade information.
- Promote public-private dialogue through a shared understanding of rules and procedures."
