In application of Article 13.1 of the EU Council Directive 2006/112/CE on the common system of the value added tax, all orders for goods and services provided by the WCO are invoiced exclusive of VAT since the WCO is regarded as non-taxable person in respect to the activities or transactions in which it engages as public authority within its scope of activity defined in the Convention of 15 December 1950 establishing a Customs Co-operation Council, even where it collects dues, fees, contributions or payments in connection with those activities or transactions.

WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement – Full course



The World Trade Organization Trade Facilitation Agreement (WTO-TFA) is the result of almost 10 years of negotiations between WTO Members. The TFA came into force on 22 February 2018 and is legally binding on WTO Members who have ratified it.

Driven by the growth in global trade, and the need to reduce the time and cost of moving goods across borders, the TFA contains provisions for speeding up the movement, release and clearance of goods. The Agreement sets out best practice for cooperation between Customs, other border agencies and private sector stakeholders, and it contains provisions for technical assistance and support for Members who may need technical assistance.

The TFA Course will help you to:

  • Enhance your knowledge regarding the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA).
  • Learn about the responsibilities of different stakeholders in implementing the TFA.
  • Understand the role of the National Committee on Trade Facilitation (NCTF).
  • Acquaint yourself with the WCO instruments and tools which can guide your Administration/Agency in TFA implementation.
  • Test your knowledge on the TFA.

The course is structured in three parts:

  1. Introduction to the TFA
  2. Technical Measures of the TFA – Parts I-VI
  3. Implementation of the TFA

The course will take approximately 8 hours to complete.

The course starts with a pre-assessment to help you assess your knowledge of the TFA and ends with a final assessment. This structure will enable you to gauge the level of knowledge you have gathered through the course.

We hope you enjoy learning about this very important Agreement.
