It has also come to the attention of Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) that some manufacturers are importing and processing roofing sheets whose widths are below what is stipulated in the standard. This is a serious malpractice because buyers of such products do not get value for their money.
Following a country wide market surveillance activity on galvanized roofing sheets, Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) has observed with great concern the presence of substandard Roofing sheets in the market that do not fully comply with the requirements of:
a) KS EAS 11: 2019. Hot-dip Galvanized plain and corrugated steel sheets – specification.
b) KS EAS 410: 2021. Hot-dip Aluminium-Zinc coated plain and corrugated steel sheets – specification
