Reduce the impact of electronic waste and ensure regulatory compliance with the SGS Renovo program for Guinea.

People in station

Electronic waste (e-waste) and used tires are a serious public health and environmental issue that Guinea is actively addressing. We are authorized by the Government of the Republic of Guinea to implement the SGS Renovo program – a revolutionary approach to waste management, combining environmental protection and social responsibility.

As a result, we collect the advance eco-levy on all electrical, electronic equipment (EEE) and tires as specified in the Arrêté A/2019/N° 5159/MEEF/CAB. We also carry out physical inspections of EEE and tires declared as used in the country of export to confirm products are not disguised e-waste.

Why choose the SGS Renovo program for Guinea?

The SGS Renovo Guinea program can help you:

  • Reduce the negative impact of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and tires in Guinea
  • Gain mandatory physical inspections in the country of origin for goods declared as used
  • Help improve Guinea’s social and environmental situation
  • Access our e-environmental declaration form to list all the goods to be supplied under a specific consignment
  • Comply with Government of the Republic of Guinea regulations
  • Receive the SGS Renovo Certificate for customs clearance in Guinea after payment of the eco-levy

You can register products, pay the eco-levy and get a receipt of certificates on the SGS Exporter Portal platform.
