At its 10th session the WCO Capacity Building Committee (CBC) has endorsed the WCO released the revised and updated version of WCO PICARD Professional Standards and the Guidelines on Recognition of University Customs Curricula to facilitate the evaluation of university curricula in order to ensure their conformity with the PICARD Professional Standards. The revised Professional Standards and WCO Guidelines for Recognition have been released by the WCO and are now publicly available.
The WCO Professional Standards are the international standards of recognition for Customs related education developed jointly by the INCU and the WCO to meet Customs competency and education demands of modern times and to provide WCO recognition to qualifying university curricula. Universities that wish to have their academic courses officially recognised as meeting the PICARD Professional Standards can apply to the WCO.
Further information about PICARD Professional Standards and the WCO recognition process together with the revised version of Professional Standards and Guidelines on Recognition of University Customs Curricula can be found on our website.
