WCO GUIDE

INTRODUCTION

1. During the 50th Anniversary of the World Customs Organization, in 2002, the leaders of national Customs administrations reflected on the main issues impacting on the effective and efficient functioning of Customs in the future. In the first 8 years of the 21st Century, Customs has been faced with considerable and at times contradictory demands arising from the globalization of trade. On the one hand, there is a need for effective security and control of international supply chains while on the other hand, there are increasing demands for greater facilitation of legitimate trade.

 

2. The leaders of the world’s Customs administrations recognize their responsibilities to develop a new strategic perspective and policies that will shape the role of Customs in the 21st Century. A blueprint for the management of trade and borders and the role of Customs should embody ambitious aspirations and yet be balanced by pragmatism. The challenges are many: the globalization of business and trade; development and poverty reduction; complex new governance rules; international terrorism; environmental protection; and the increase in trans-national threats. Equally, the opportunities for bold, proactive and innovative responses are just as numerous: a global Customs network; better management of borders; a strategic framework with globally beneficial objectives; a deepening Customs understanding of supply chains and their management; leveraging new technology; and the strengthening of Customs partnerships not only with trade but also with other border, law enforcement and other relevant government agencies.

 

3. Taking advantage of these opportunities will enable Customs to protect the fiscal and financial interests of the state, to protect national economies from illicit movement of goods, to support the international trading system by creating level playing fields for business, to enhance national competitiveness, to facilitate legitimate trade, and to protect society.

 

4. The benefits of an adaptable, strategically focused Customs administration are immense and include reduced compliance costs for legitimate traders, more effective and efficient targeting of high-risk movements, and greater confidence and mutual recognition among Customs administrations of each other’s programmes and controls.

 

FAST-CHANGING LANDSCAPE

5. International trade is a key driver for economic growth and development. It raises living standards in both developed and developing countries, contributes to the reduction of poverty as well as creates a more stable, secure and peaceful world. International trade is governed by the rules of the regional and multilateral trading systems, preferential trade arrangements and national governments. New developments are driven by a combination of factors including fast-evolving information and communications technology (ICT), advances in transportation methods and trade liberalization.


3.

6. The global trade landscape is complex, fluid and highly sensitive to external drivers. These include:

 

(a) Increased volumes and complexities of international trade: International trade has increased annually by 8 % from 2002 to 2006. At the same time, there has been a proliferation of regional trade agreements and accompanying complex preferential rules of origin;

(b) New business models and requirements: Just-in-time distribution, low inventory retention and multi-modal transport are resulting in innovative methods of moving goods across borders and increase pressures on supply chains. Business also demands protection from unfair international trading practices such as the smuggling of goods, under-invoicing, origin fraud, tariff misclassification and IPR infringements;

 

(c) Increased security threats and organized crime: International trade supply chains are vulnerable to exploitation by terrorist groups. A disruption of supply chains by terrorists could bring international trade to a standstill. Organized crime syndicates operate through fluid networks and engage in illegal activities such as the evasion and avoidance of duties and taxes; cross-border fiscal fraud; the smuggling of drugs, dangerous, harmful and prohibited goods; money laundering; and trade in counterfeit goods;

 

(d) A new approach to the “border”: New measures are emerging for the end-to-end management of the movement of goods across borders such as the WCO SAFE Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade and other initiatives;

 

(e) Demands from society: Society regards the smuggling of goods, especially that of prohibited and dangerous goods, such as weapons and narcotics, across borders as a serious threat. Society expects Customs to ensure that goods meet certain quality and safety standards. Society is also concerned with threats to public health, its fauna and flora, as well as the environment;

 

(f) New trading patterns: Approximately 50 % of world trade takes place between connected parties; and

 

(g) Increase in revenue fraud: There is an increase in threats related to duty and tax evasion and avoidance.

CHALLENGES FOR GOVERNMENTS

“The central challenge that states face is to ensure that globalization becomes a positive force for all the world’s people”1

7. Recent developments have created new demands and perspectives on the role of the modern state. They have also resulted in a recognition of the collective responsibility of states to build a more peaceful, prosperous and just world, as nations and societies become increasingly interconnected and interdependent. Global challenges transcend borders and demand global responses. In addition to cooperation at a global level, states are also increasing cooperation at regional level by establishing and developing Customs unions, free trade areas (FTAs) and economic partnership agreements (EPAs).

 

8. The strategic drivers and new trans-national and national challenges have increased the demands on, and the responsibilities of, states in the 21st Century. According to the UN, globalization does not reduce but rather redefines the role of the state and the necessary state responses at the national, regional and international levels. Some of the key responsibilities of states include:

 

(a) Promoting socio-economic development: Ensuring the proper management of social and economic development by developing and implementing appropriate socio-economic policies;

 

(b) Creating the conditions for economic growth: Ensuring a level playing field and nurturing an efficient international trading system, which is critical to economic growth and the collection of state revenues;

 

(c) Controlling borders: Ensuring secure borders is one of the oldest functions of the state. Carrying out this responsibility in a very open world is more important and challenging than ever. States are recognizing that international trade and economic integration raise new global security challenges that have to be addressed internationally so that common solutions can be developed;

 

(d) Providing security: The concept of providing security, also one of the core functions of the state, has expanded from the traditional notion of military and political national security to also include national economic security; and

 

(e) Protecting citizens: Protecting citizens against threats such as contaminated food, unsafe toys and consumer products, fake medicines and other counterfeit products also provide new imperatives for Customs.

 

9. Governments require agencies of the state, including Customs, to be service-oriented and meet the expectations of societies and businesses. In other words, Customs administrations need to ensure the performance of their tasks, while listening to the expectations of their stakeholders.
