THE UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANZANIA:COMPANY PERSPECTIVES – AN ITC SERIES ON NON-TARIF MEASURES
Some 70% of Tanzanian businesses say they face burdensome non-tariff measures (NTMs), mostly
related to food and agro-based products, according to a recent ITC survey. Nearly 84% of these cases are for exports to developing countries, mostly to the East African Community and the Southern African Development Community. NTMs for exports to the European Union are also a major concern. Rules of origin, conformity assessment, pre-shipment inspection and other entry formalities are the biggest challenges. At the same time, most Tanzanian importers also report that they face similar NTMs.
