WCO Global Accreditation Workshop on Risk Management in Brussels

29 November 2017

A WCO Global Accreditation Workshop on Risk Management was conducted in the French language from 20 to 24 November 2017 in Brussels, with the sponsorship of the Customs Cooperation Fund of Japan (CCF-Japan).

Following nominations by the WCO Members, the WCO Secretariat evaluated applications considering pre-determined criteria. This resulted in the selection of 12 participants from 11 countries to participate in the accreditation workshop.

The WCO Accreditation Workshops on Risk Management are designed to develop a pool of advisors capable of using the WCO Risk Management Compendium, the WCO Diagnostic Framework and the WCO Capacity Building Development Compendium in order to deliver missions within Customs administrations on behalf of the WCO, leading to the development of effective risk management structures, procedures and products.

At the end of the event, candidates who successfully completed this Workshop were considered as pre-accredited and as a second phase will be invited to an in-country mission as co-facilitators. Pre-accredited candidates who are successful during the second phase will become WCO Accredited Risk Management Advisors.
