End User Certificate (EUC) is compulsorily required for the importation of all controlled items into the country. The Certificate is issued by only the Office of the National Security Adviser, (ONSA).


Controlled items include: arms and ammunitions of all kinds, (lethal and non-lethal); all forms of bullet proof materials including vehicles, vests, ballistic materials and bullion, vans among others.

EUCs are issued in order to prevent such items from being diverted within the buyer country or re-exported under undesirable conditions and thus find their ways into illicit market.

EUC tracks the shipment of controlled items to ensure that the buyer is the actual recipient of the items and to certify that there are no plans to transfer them to other parties.
