 Question: How will the Single Window Work?

The Kenya National Electronic Single Window System (KNESWS) will;

(i)Integrate/interface with the electronic systems of stakeholders involved in the cargo clearance process e.g. Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and

(ii)       Provide  working  modules  for  relevant  institutions  which  do  not  have  adequate

management information systems to interface with KNESWS to operate- Kenya Bureau of Standards  (KEBS), Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Services (KEPHIS), Port Health etc. (Currently 24 in total).

(iii)      Integrate with the existing payment Systems to provide an end to end electronic

solution to trade logistics in Kenya.

(iv)      The Single Window System would be accessible 24/7 online. It would include an inbuilt  Dynamic  Risk  Management  Module  to  ensure  objectivity  in  targeting  and

releasing of cargo by Government Agencies.
