The INCU signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with WCO in September 2009 to promote cooperation in the development of world-class customs training, education, capacity building and research. The MOU was renewed in September 2012.
In broad terms, the INCU-WCO MOU provides that both organisations agree:
- To develop a long-term strategic alliance that will mutually benefit the organizational aims and objectives of both Parties.
- To permit reference to the professional association between the two Parties to be made by either Party in public documents such as information brochures, subject to prior approval of the other Party.
- To recognize the status of the WCO and INCU as international representative bodies.
