Oman becomes 98th Contracting Party to the WCO Revised Kyoto Convention

13 enero 2015

His Excellency the Ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman in Brussels deposited his country’s instrument of accession to the International Convention on the Simplification and Harmonization of Customs Procedures (Revised Kyoto Convention - RKC) on 06 January 2015.

The RKC is the international standard for making Customs regulatory procedures as efficient and effective as possible. Some of the 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 Revised Kyoto Convention now has 98 Contracting Parties.

The WCO Secretary General, Mr. Kunio Mikuriya, welcomed the accession of Oman, since this demonstrates the country’s commitment to implementing Customs procedures adapted to the international trade environment and efforts towards trade facilitation.

The Secretary General strongly encourages other WCO Members to accede to the RKC as soon as possible.
