WCO participation in the First African Union Workshop on Pre-Shipment Inspections

The First Workshop of the African Union Technical Customs Working Group on Pre-Shipment Inspections took place in Moroni, Comoros from 29 to 31 May 2019. The Workshop was organized by the African Union Commission, in collaboration with the World Customs Organization (WCO) West and Central Africa Regional Office for Capacity Building (WCA-ROCB). In his introductory speech, Mr. Souef Kamalidini, Director General of Comoros Customs, thanked the WCO for its technical assistance, which was central to the positive changes and reforms of African Customs administrations. The main objective of this Workshop was to create a framework for collaboration, and for sharing experiences and good practices between countries that have already terminated their contract with inspection companies and those still using them.
