An import permit is only issued to the applicant if he/she obtains a no objection certificate from the veterinary department (which is the final authority on animal diseases) of the country of origin stating that the milk to be exported is fit and that it meets the health requirements of Kenya.
The certificate of no objection (veterinary approval) is a pre-requisite document and should be obtained before making the milk dairy produce importation permit application.
