The Ghana Standard for Used Vehicles, GS 4510:2022 Road Vehicles — Requirements for Imported Used Motor Vehicles, must be demonstrated by the certificate, according to the statement.

The GSA claims that this complies with Section 61 of Act 891 as modified, the Customs (Amendment) Act 2020, and other relevant laws.

“Enforcement of this part of the law shall ensure better safety, quality, and asset value of used vehicles imported into Ghana, while preserving the value chain of the used vehicle industry,” it was stated in a release.

GSA said that authorized third-party inspection organizations and certified secondhand car sellers both offer Certificates of Conformance.

An updated list of approved inspection bodies and licensed used vehicle dealerships with contact details shall be provided on the website of the Authority.

The Authority would like to take this chance to remind all importers and assemblers of new vehicles to register with the Authority and make sure that imported or assembled vehicle models are homologated (certified) by the Authority in accordance with the applicable Ghana Standards for new vehicles of categories M1 (passenger cars and SUVs), M2 (minibuses), and N1 (Pickups and cargo vans).

From January 1st 2023, new automobiles of models that have not been homologated (certified) by the Authority will not be allowed for import.

For information on vehicle standards, new car distributor registration, and used vehicle dealership licensing, GSA also advised the public to get in touch with the GSA Auto Team.
