World Customs Organization (WCO)

The World Customs Organization (WCO) is an intergovernmental organization that facilitates global trade, security, and customs compliance. Established in 1953 as the Customs Co-operation Council (CCC), it seeks to harmonize customs procedures among its 185 member states.

The WCO provides technical assistance, training, and capacity building for its members, promotes best practices in developing modern border management systems, assists with dispute resolution between countries, and works with other international organizations on issues related to supply chain security.

The WCO also develops standards for classifying goods under the Harmonized System (HS) of product classification that is used by multiple countries and economies to help facilitate global trade.
