The Automated Support System for the Importation of Phytosanitary Consignments (ASSIP) is a revolutionary e-commerce platform that regulates the importation of plants, plant products and regulated articles into Kenya.

The System greatly minimize the risks associated with the importation of plants, plants products, seeds and regulated articles such as soil and biological control agents thereby enhancing food security and sustainable growth in Kenya.

Previously, importation of consignments with Phytosanitary concern follow an arduous manual process of physical risk determination, verification and inspection, clearing at points of entry, thereby posing pertinent risks to Kenya.
