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.

Customs classification: The grass is always greener on the other side
29-05-2024

An Israeli magistrate court recently ruled on the classification of industrial robots used to lift goods in logistics warehouses. The Court rejected the customs' position and ruled in favour of the importer. Both parties submitted decisions from foreign customs authorities and WCO decisions supporting their position and the Court found the importer's references more convincing. In this context, the question arises as to whether or not the decisions of foreign customs authorities are relevant in court.
