Всемирная таможенная организация (ВТамО) и Международная организация гражданской авиации (ИКАО) рады объявить о выпуске расширенного издания их совместной брошюры под названием «Глобальные грузовые авиаперевозки: Безопасность цепочки поставок авигруза и почты и упрощение формальностей». Хотя брошюра стала бесценным ресурсом для регулирующих органов и операторов воздушного транспорта во всем мире, мы рады сообщить, что теперь она доступна не только на английском и французском языках, но также на арабском, китайском, русском и испанском языках.
The World Customs Organization (WCO) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) are excited to announce the release of an expanded edition of their joint brochure, titled «Moving Air Cargo Globally — Air Cargo and Mail Secure Supply Chain and Facilitation.» While the brochure has been an invaluable resource for air transport regulators and operators worldwide, we are thrilled to inform that it is now available not only in English and French but also in Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish.
One of the fundamental requirements of the Harmonized System (HS) is that it must incorporate changes to recognise new products or technology, changing trade patterns, or the changing needs of governments. This requires people to conceive and bring into effect those changes.
Over the past year, WCO Members and stakeholders carried out a comprehensive review of the e-commerce business models and the roles and responsibilities of e-commerce stakeholders as described in the Technical Specifications to the Framework of Standards on Cross-Border E-Commerce (E-Commerce FoS). The review involved the discussion of 38 formal proposals submitted by Members, partner international organizations and private-sector stakeholders, as well as the drafting and discussion of proposed amendments. The purpose of the amendments is to reflect the dynamically evolving nature of e-commerce and provide more clarity on the roles and responsibilities of the various e-commerce stakeholders. Given its specific implications for Customs, a description of the e-commerce fulfilment process has been added to the part of the Technical Specifications describing e-commerce business models.
Since the information resource «Russian Customs Academy: SCIENCE» regularly publishes legal instruments and tools of the World Customs Organization (WCO), we could not ignore the updated «WCO Compendium on Gender Equality and Diversity in Customs ». The Compendium and the corresponding information was published on 03/08/2023 on the WCO website and are interesting in terms of understanding what issues the WCO is dealing with in the direction of “capacity building”, as well as within the framework of courses “English for customs officers” at universities.
Recently, much attention has been paid to the development of the institute of digital, intellectual, smart customs as well as advanced customs technologies in the scientific community.

The audience of the event was 3rd and 4th year students of the customs specialty.
