United Arab Emirates accedes to the Revised Kyoto Convention

1 June 2010

Press Release

On 31 May 2010, the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates deposited the UAE’s instrument of accession to the International Convention on the Simplification and Harmonization of Customs Procedures (revised Kyoto Convention) with the World Customs Organization.

The Convention is regarded as a blueprint for effective and modern Customs procedures.

WCO Secretary General, Kunio Mikuriya said, “The UAE is the second Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Signatory State to accede to the revised Kyoto Convention and I am positive that even more GCC States will accede in the near future given the positive impact that the Convention will have on trade facilitation and Customs modernization in the region.”

Some of the revised Kyoto Convention’s key elements include the application of simplified Customs procedures in a predictable and transparent environment, the maximum use of information technology, the utilization of risk management, a strong partnership with the trade and other stakeholders, and a readily accessible system of appeals.

Having entered into force on 3 February 2006, the Convention now has 69 Contracting Parties.
