Complaint
The process of obtaining DRC Ogeframe certificate delays cargo at the port and increases costs. Procedure is too long as it involves exporter paying fees at Tanzania Revenue Authority in DAr es Salaam Office and then take the document for endorsement by DRC. This is applicable only to transit goods to DRC.  
Progress update note
At the 18th SADC Sub Committee on Trade Facilitation meeting held in Gaborone, Tanzania informed the meeting that it was the DRC companies that experienced the NTB, however, DRC responded that they had not received any complaint from the companies . The two countries would undertake bilateral consultations between the Ministries of Transport and Ministries of Trade and report back.
