85 - 03/99 - Health Service Inspections/Penalties - Gabon

We have been notified that the Gabonese Health Authorities are boarding ships calling at Port Gentil and Owendo.  It would appear that not only will medicine, food, drink or other products with an expired validity date be destroyed, but the ship  may also be subject to a "fine".

We would suggest all Members trading to the area warn their masters accordingly.
