- Import Declaration Form (IDF) is applicable on all imports to Tanzania irrespective of value. However, imports whose FOB (Freight on Board) value is US $5,000 and above must undergo a pre-shipment inspection by a company contracted by the Government of Tanzania. In case of Japan, this is executed by Cotecna Inspections.

Cotecna Pre-Inspection

On 13th November 2003, COTECNA Inspection S.A. was awarded a contract by the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) to implement a DESTINATION INSPECTION SCHEME (DIS) in replacement of the PRESHIPMENT INSPECTION SCHEME (PSI) formerly in place.

This contract, effective from 1st January 2004, was for a seven (7) years period, but Tanzania officially abandoned Pre-shipment Inspections on 1st July 2004.
