The manuals represent a milestone in EAC customs policy and an important step in moving towards a fully-fledged customs union. To ensure widespread uptake and usage of the manuals, the EA Trade Hub will support the EAC in dissemination of all three manuals to customs officials at all regional borders, clearing and forwarding agents, and importers and exporters. The EA Trade Hub also plans to facilitate trainings on the manuals and implementation of their policies and procedures in the coming months.
