The Protocol is an agreement between SADC Member States to reduce customs duties and other barriers to trade on products from each other. By January 1, 2008, most customs duties (on 85% of tariff lines) had been eliminated for goods originating from SADC Member States. COMESA Free Trade Area The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) is a regional integration grouping of African States which have agreed to promote regional integration through trade development and to develop their natural and human resources for the mutual benefit of all their peoples. COMESA Member States established a Free Trade Area (FTA) on 31 October Fourteen States (Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Kenya, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Rwanda, Sudan, Seychelles, Zambia and Zimbabwe) are participating in the Free Trade Area. COMESA Simplified Trade Regime COMESA implemented the Simplified Trade Regime (STR) to help the small trader to benefit from the preferential rates enjoyed by commercial traders when importing or exporting goods within the COMESA Bloc. The regime is operational between Zimbabwe and Zambia, and Zimbabwe and Malawi. The maximum value of goods traded under STR is US$ STR is used for goods that have been grown or wholly produced in the COMESA Region. The trader will complete a simplified customs document (declaration form) and a simplified COMESA certificate of origin. These documents are filled in at the border post by the trader and certified by a customs official. Goods to be exported should comply with the normal food safety, plant and animal health regulations including environmental protection. Import or export permits needed to import or export certain agricultural foods and animal products are still required. For more information on trading under COMESA FTA, COMESA STR and SADC Trade Protocol refer to ZimTrade s Guide to Zimbabwe s Trade Agreements.
