Customs modernisation relates to the full range of Customs operations. Its main objective is to ensure that Customs administrations constantly keep pace with developments in international trade, whether of a technological, legal or economic nature. A modernisation programme for Customs services seeks to develop a competent and efficient administration, determine the optimum management of staff and available technical resources, and instil a culture of good governance and integrity to facilitate the crucial role played by Customs in the global trading system.
