For Posts, it is intended as a means of acquainting staff with the various aspects of the postal supply chain's customs component and with the different WCO standards, instruments and tools. For Customs administrations,the guide will help staff responsible for postal customs clearance to become more familiar with the postal processes involved in the international exchange of mail.

This document also seeks to form a common basis for dialogue and discussion at national level between the designated operators of Universal Postal Union (UPU) member countries and Customs administrations of the World Customs Organization (WCO).
