Agency announces new system for collecting radiation assessment fees


The Radiation Protection Authority (RPA) has announced a new system for collecting radiation assessment fees, titled the Zambia Electronic Single Window (ZESW).

The Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) through the ZESW system would effective April 19, 2024 begin to collect the radiation assessment fees.

RPA Senior Public Relations Officer, Loveness Millimo, confirmed the development in a statement issued in Lusaka on Friday.

Milimo said the transition aligned with the provisions of the World Trade Organization (WTO) trade facilitation agreement ratified in December 2015.

“The Zambia Electronic Single Window serves as a centralised platform for trade-related activities, streamlining processes and promoting efficiency in cross-border trade,” she stated.

Milimo explained that the ZESW system was a one-stop platform for trade-related activities.

She added that this change would streamline the process for those whose businesses involved goods subject to radiation assessment fees.

“This move aligns with the WTO’s trade facilitation agreement, promoting efficiency in cross-border trade,” Milimo said.

She encouraged stakeholders, including transporters, clearing agents and the public to visit the RPA website in order to get acquainted with the new system.

Milimo assured that the Authority remained committed to ensuring the highest standards of safety, efficiency, and compliance in trade operations.
