Complaint
Increase of Import and Export fees on animal and animal products by Tanzania. Tanzania has amended the “Animals & Animal Products Movement Control (Amended) Regulations, 2018” that has increased the charges.  
Status note
The CoC guided that:-
Refer the imposition of additional levies under the animal diseases (Livestock Markets) Regulations, 2018 by URT under Government Notice 476 of 31st August 2018 to SCTIFI.

The Secretariat guided that where national laws impose levies on imports and exports, this should not apply to goods originating within the EAC.

URT informed the meeting that such charges exist in other Partner States.

The SCTIFI meeting agreedthat this guidance should therefore be applicable to all Partner States.

The matter was resolved.
