How to fill in a SADC certificate

South African businesses exporting goods to Southern African countries may be eligible to receive SADC (Southern Africa Development Community) certificates. These certificates state that the exported goods were either wholly or partly manufactured in South Africa. A SADC certificate gives an exporter a great competitive advantage as there is little or no import duty charged on cargo accompanied with a SADC certificate. This lowers the buyer’s costs and makes your product look more attractive.

Countries that take part in SADC include: Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mauritius, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Seychelles, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland form an additional customs union with South Africa that allows free passage of goods without the SADC certificate.

When you apply for the SADC certificates you receive a pack of 20 or 50 blank certificates. You need to fill in one and send it with each export to a SADC country. Each section of the SADC certificate is numbered, below is how to complete each section. To view a SADC certificate and the below sections click here.

Section 1: The exporter’s name and address.

Section 2: The buyers name and address.

Section 3, 5 & 12: For official use, leave this blank.

Section 4: Mode of transport (air/road/sea). You can add the departure and destination cities or the transport vessel number but this is not essential. For example “Road freight from Cape Town to Lusaka”.

Section 6: This includes a basic description of the goods and how they are packed. Are there any marks on the packaging or is there a container number? If not state “no marks”. An example would be “1 x 6 meter container containing 1000 cartons pendant light fittings”.

Section 7: List the tariff codes of all cargo items here.

Section 8: Insert “P” for goods wholly produced in South Africa or “S” for goods made with some imported components.

Section 9: This is the total weight included packaging material.

Section 10: Give the number and date of the commercial invoice accompanying your cargo.

Section 11: For official use, leave this blank.

Back Page: Turn over your SADC certificate and complete the back page by filling in a brief description of how the goods were manufactured and why the are of South African origin (for example “manufactured in a South African factory using South African raw materials”) and list any supporting documents that you may supply. The supporting documents are not compulsory and may include items such as manufacturer’s declaration.

Making use of the SADC certificates is one simple way to give your products an edge when competing in Southern Africa.

To find out if you are registered and to order a pack of SADC certificates contact Customs – SARS on 0800 00 7277.
