NTB-000-636 8.6. Vehicle standards
Policy/Regulatory
2014-06-26 Botswana: Kazungula Bridge - weigh bridge South Africa In process View
Complaint: Kazungula Bridge is imposing Botswana truck standards on South African registered vehicles in transit through Botswana to Zambia  
Progress: On 31st march 3015, Botswana focal point requested for more information on the NTB to facilitate consultations with the appropriate institution. They reported that they had consulted the South African Focal Point on the margins of the SADC TNF held on the 30-31 March 2015 in Gaborone who indicated that the NTB lacked clarity and therefore South Africa did not consider it as an NTB.  
NTB-000-670 8.6. Vehicle standards 2015-05-08 Tanzania: Tunduma SADC New View
Complaint: Despite the passing and acceptance of EAC Vehicle Overload Bill of 2012, whereby it states under the Fourth Schedule s.5 (1) (c) - VEHICLE DIMENSIONS, AXLE LOAD CONFIGURATIONS AND VEHICLE COMBINATIONS, that the maximum vehicle combination length permissible is 22 m and which includes and covers the South African designed and developed Interlink combination of 22 m maximum. Tanzania are still insisting on abnormal vehicle permits to be issued to these vehicles on entry into Tanzania at Tunduma Border Post at a cost of US $20 per entry or face heavy penalties including the impounding of vehicles if they are not in posesion of an abnormal permit.

This is in breach of the Bill which has been accepted by all EAC Member Countries including Tanzania and this policy needs to be revoked ASAP.
