Posted on : 24 - Jul - 2012 - Viewed : 1030 times

In order to facilitate the elimination of Non-Tariff-Barriers (NTBs) to trade, EAC, with support from TradeMark Southern Africa (TMSA), is implementing an NTB reporting, monitoring and elimination mechanism.
The system is supported by NTBs structures whose main function is to process and facilitate resolution of reported barriers.

Online reporting mechanism (www.tradebarriers.org ) is shared by EAC, COMESA and SADC .

The process of reporting NTBs is established through the responsible national ministries and private sector focal points that forward the complaints from the private sector operators to the NMCs. The NMC meets on quarterly basis to discuss the complaints, propose solutions and identify institutions that should take specific corrective actions.
The focal points e-mail addresses in EAC are the following :
1. Burundi : Burundi@tradebarriers.org
2. Kenya : Kenya@tradebarriers.org
3. Rwanda : Rwanda@tradebarriers.org
4. Tanzania : Tanzania@tradebarriers.org
5. Uganda : Uganda@tradebarriers.org
