Transparency and Predictability Guidelines

Transparency and predictability of regulations and procedures at borders are widely recognized as an essential element of trade facilitation. Transparency and predictability are the starting point for ensuring the efficiency and, ultimately, the stability of a rules-based environment for goods crossing the border.

The Guidelines aim to provide Customs administrations with comprehensive and practical guidance on how to enhance and commit to their transparency and predictability, with a view to trade facilitation and integrity.
