Iran joins WCO’s specialized bodies

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran was accepted as member in two important international bodies affiliated to the World Customs Organization (WCO).

Iran’s membership in WCO’s Audit Committee and Regional Steering Group was approved during a meeting between the Iranian delegation to Brussels headed by the country’s Customs Administration Managing Director Massoud Karbasiyan.

The 124th Annual Meeting of Customs Cooperation of the WCO was held in Brussels on June 26-28.

The World Customs Organization, established in 1952 as the Customs Cooperation Council (CCC) is an independent intergovernmental body whose mission is to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of Customs administrations.

Today, the WCO represents 179 Customs administrations across the globe that collectively process approximately 98% of world trade. As the global center of Customs expertise, the WCO is the only international organization with competence in Customs matters and can rightly call itself the voice of the international Customs community.
