The WCO PICARD Programme was launched in 2006 to provide a platform to promote the professional standing of Customs business and provide an ideal channel for cooperation between Customs, academic partners and other stakeholders carrying out Customs-related research.

A key aim of the annual PICARD Conference is to promote high-level exchanges on Customs research and professionalism, where participants are provided with an opportunity to interact with their government, commercial and academic counterparts from around the world.

The Conference will be jointly organized by the WCO and the Customs Administration of Mexico with support from the International Network of Customs Universities (INCU).
