Complaint
Tanzania Revenue Authority imposes a Weights and measures levy at 2% of the customs value for every export. The levy is not being picked on the customs entries as is the norm but on a different collection sheet raising questions on authenticity of the levy.  
Status note
During the SCTIFI meeting held on 16 November 2018, Tanzania reported that this is a weight and measures levy that is paid by all including Tanzania exporters and hence it is not an NTB. The Meeting recommended that the levy should be harmonised across EAC Partner States.  
Progress update note
During the Extra Ordinary meeting of the SCTIFI that sat in Februay, 2018, Tanzania reported that she will look into the matter in the context of regional harmonization of all fees.
