St Kitts Hosted the CCLEC Executive Committee (EXCO) Meeting

The St Kitts and Nevis Customs and Excise Division hosted the EXCO meeting from November 8-9, 2016.  Customs Comptrollers and representatives from fourteen nations were present at the meeting including Canada and the USA.
The meeting considered a number of initiatives including:

  • The draft treaty
  1. Organizational change
  2. Implementation of RCS2016 and SailClear
  3. Implementation of a customs valuation risk database
  4. Development and accreditation of CCLEC’s training modules
  5. MOUs with strategic partners

The CCLEC which was established in the 1970s has been operating as an informal organisation however it is actively pursuing the formalization of the organisation through a treaty.  This is an issue of monumental significance for the organization as it seeks to increase support for its programmes through donor funding and enhance information sharing.
