Activities and Programmes

The numerous activities made under the Integrity programme include:

  • the promotion of the WCO integrity strategies and tools achieved through active participation in international and regional meetings;
  • the workshop activities, including train-the-trainer workshops on integrity, in Zimbabwe, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Argentina, Malaysia and Bahrain in co-operation with donor agencies and Regional Offices for Capacity Building; and
  • integration of the Integrity Programme into the broader work of the WCO, for example, a major Chapter on integrity in the Capacity Building Diagnostic Framework; a key component of the self-assessment checklists for the SAFE Framework of Standards (SAFE) and Trade Facilitation; and an integrated part of diagnostics.
  • Besides updating integrity tools, a project combining integrity and enforcement was set up. Called "Project GAPIN", this initiative is aimed at raising Customs’ awareness on wildlife trafficking which is often linked to breaches in integrity.  Click here to see the awareness raising material developed for the project as well as additional information related to the project
