  4. When do you apply STR?

When do you apply STR?

  1. It means; traders will now easily access Certificate of Origin issued at border points rather than from capitals – too far
  2. STR will therefore be applied between countries which are both members of a particular FTA, COMESA or EAC.
  3. For non-FTA member states e.g. DRC they first need to make an offer to remove import duties for selected products for specifically STR eligible traders.
