Working Together To Make Trading Easier

The Jamaica Import/Export Inspection Centre (JI/EIC), informally known as the “One-Stop-Shop”, was established in 2009 as part of the Jamaican Government’s Public Sector Modernization Programme. The JI/EIC facilitates an efficient, timely and coordinated inspection service. The JI/EIC office, located at Kingston Container Terminal (KCT) Services Ltd., Berth 11, houses representatives of all Government regulatory agencies responsible for human, animal and plant health and safety. The agencies involved include:

  • Food Storage and Prevention of Infestation Division

  • Jamaica Customs Department

  • Plant Quarantine/Produce Inspection

  • Veterinary Services Division

  • Environmental Health/Public Health

  • Pharmaceutical Division

  • Pesticides Control Authority

  • Bureau of Standards Jamaica

The JI/EIC office

These agencies, with previously operated from different locations, now coordinate inspections allowing importers and exporters speedy processing of documents and cargo which results in greater efficiency in their businesses. This One-Stop-Shop will also improve Jamaica’s competitive advantage, boost and attract investment, guarantee compliance with local and international standards and ensure safe and wholesome products for consumers.
