Complaint
Kenya banned exports of scrap metals destined to Rwanda in accordance with scrap metal Act NO. 1 OF 2015  
Progress update note
During the meeting of the SCTIFI that took place in November, 2017 Kenya reported that there was no enough evidence that Rwanda was being denied to trade in scrap metal by Kenya. The Scrap Metal Act No. 1 of 2015 has exemptions that can be used in this type of trade. This should be considered resolved.
