Technology in support of Customs in the supply chain – A spotlight on relevant international standards

12:00 pm
 – 3:00 pm

The World Customs Organization will hold its 2nd TECH-CON in a virtual mode on 10-11 November. TECH-CON 2021 will discuss international standards of importance for automation and interoperability amongst relevant systems contributing to the efficiency of border procedures.

As a standard setting organization, the WCO and its Membership work in close cooperation with all relevant international organizations and the private sector towards developing consistent and meaningful IT and data exchange standards that can ensure a harmonized approach in collecting and sharing of data for Customs purposes.

A better awareness and understanding of the standards that can support Customs’ mission is critical for increasing their level and consistency of implementation. This applies to all modes of transport, including complex e-commerce and single window environments. Regardless of the technology used, whether we are looking at legacy systems or blockchain technology, standards are the key building block for successful interoperable solutions.

TECH-CON 2021 sessions will delve into the application of international standards at different levels, including dataset, data model and harmonization, X-ray imaging, legal, identity, interoperability and many other standards. Join us and gain valuable expert insights from representatives of Member administrations, international organizations, private sector associations and others.

All registered participants will receive the Zoom access link closer to the conference.
