Draft East African Standards for Poultry, Eggs and Derived Products

The following Draft East African Standards have been developed under the mandate of the East African Standards Committee under the comprehensive programme for developing standards for products of trade and export potential in the East African Community. The envisaged standards are intended to cover the necessary aspects to make East African products competitive and acceptable regionally and internationally. The Draft East African Standards are available for download free of charge. Comments for improvement of the standards are welcome from all interested parties within the EAC and our trading partners as well as interested professionals in their respective fields worldwide. The comments should be submitted to the East African Community Secretariat or the Contact Person in the Partner States using the EAS Comments Template (doc).
