Introduction of advance rulings system in Côte d’Ivoire
14-06-2024

In 2023, Côte d’Ivoire introduced a new and modern system of advance customs rulings. This development followed two workshops organised in Côte d’Ivoire in May 2023 with the German Alliance for Trade Facilitation and under the aegis of the EU-WCO Programme for the Harmonized System in Africa funded by the EU. The workshops were part of a wider capacity-building programme to support Côte d’Ivoire in meeting its WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement obligations - in particular, Article 3 of the TFA which requires signatory parties to provide an option to apply advance rulings on origin and classification.

The impact of the Turkish-Israeli trade crisis on the region
09-06-2024

Recently, trade relations between Turkey and Israel have been shaky. Although Turkey and Israel have had a free trade agreement for many years, Turkey announced that it would stop all trade with Israel, to which Israel responded that it intended to abolish the free trade agreement and also impose additional 100% tariffs on imports from Turkey. This crisis will not only affect the two parties, but possibly also EU traders.

Origin of goods – the trends
07-04-2024

The language of sustainable development legislation and the language of the legislation of origin are completely different; it is necessary to find a lingua franca for these areas to better understand and implement the requirements. On the other hand, harmonisation of rules of origin at a global level is essential to address the challenges faced by importers - the need for harmonisation of these rules has never been greater. These and many other views were exchanged at the 20th Authors' Meeting. We invite you to read an overview.
