Standards Association Of Zimbabwe - Destination Inspection

Thank you for the enquiry. SAZ offers destination inspection for goods which have arrived at ports of entry without the necessary Pre-shipment Inspection CoC in accordance with SI124:2020 and we confirm our ability to do the inspection at ports of entry as we have inspectors on site.


We work from Monday to Friday. Therefore, all things being equal we should be able to inspect within 48 hours to 72 hours and issue a certificate based on findings. But we also stand guided by you. If you are ready. We can do same day service once payments are confirmed.
