WCO Revised Arusha Declaration Implementation Resources webpage enhances access to integrity-related tools and instruments

09 diciembre 2020

Tools and Instruments related to integrity are currently accessible to WCO Members. In order to enhance this access, the WCO has rearranged its suites of integrity-related tools and instruments under its Revised Arusha Declaration Implementation Resources webpage. This new structure aims at providing a facilitated access to tools and instruments. Resources are now associated to each of the ten key factors of the Revised Arusha Declaration, and as before, will assist Members to implement anti-corruption and integrity promotion measures in Customs.

What has not changed is that instruments such as the WCO Revised Kyoto Convention (RKC), as well as tools, guidelines and compilations of good practices on subject matters such as internal control, for example are still much relevant. Other tools have gained more visibility such as gender equality and diversity and performance measurement. Further non-WCO resources are considered, such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), or the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), as they have also relevance to the WCO fight against corruption.

This new page is the result of a collective effort by Members’ experts, the WCO Secretariat and the Anti-Corruption & Integrity Promotion (A-CIP) Programme for Customs funded by Norad.
