The Bank of Tanzania Act, 2006 and the Banking and Financial Institutions Act, 2006 mandate the Bank of Tanzania (BOT) to license, regulate and supervise banks and financial institutions in Tanzania. As a regulator, BOT is entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring stable, sound and safe banking sector and financial system at large.
