Executive Summary

Capacity building

One notable initiative conducted by WCO is the Columbus Program, which is dedicated to the capacity building of Customs Administrations in support of the implementation of the Framework of Standards. This major effort might have been partly inspired by the difficulties met in many countries during the implementation of the ISPS code, and should contribute greatly to the implementation of the WCO Framework of Standards world-wide.
