About Our Association

Our members can make import and export easier for you.

Chairperson`s message

The Progressive Customs Brokers Association of Zimbabwe (PCBAZ) was formed in 2023 to promote and protect the interests of its members who are professional customs brokers. It is a non-profit organisation established by its Constitution. It is member driven.

There are two categories of membership and these are Individual membership and corporate membership. Individual membership is open to anyone offering customs advisory services and corporate membership is open to any firm operating as a clearing agent, importers and exporters.

The affairs of the Association are run by either an appointed or elected Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is answerable to the general membership who meet at least once annually at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). PCBAZ books of accounts are audited annually and open for inspection by members at any time during normal business hours. The annual subscriptions are used to organise an annual conference and participation in stakeholder engagement like Customs Commissioner`s meetings.
