The EAC Trade Helpdesk provides information on product specific basis
for products being imported into the EAC or being exported from the EAC
into any EAC country or to the rest of the world. The information that
is provided include general and specific requirements and internal
taxes for imports and exports, import tariffs, rules of origins,
transit requirements and trade statistics.
To get information on specific products, correct product HS Code must be specified in the Search Form. If you are not sure of the code, the system allows you to search by the product name. As you type the name, the system gives details of the HS Code and product description and allows you to pick the product that you want to search.
In every section, the User Guide or FAQ provides further help in case one experiences difficulties in search the products by HS code or corresponding products name.
