CTI assist its members to process applications for exemptions from Pre-Shipment of Conformity to Standards on imported raw materials, machine and spare parts. Exemptions are granted to members whose products are certified by Tanzania Bureau of Standards. In order to get exemption a member must make a formal application to TBS through CTI and must submit a list of products with their respective HS CODES. This has helped members to speed the process of clearing their consignments at the port of entries. The exemptions are strictly given to members who hold TBS licenses.
