The Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) is an integrated customs management system for international trade and transport operations in a modern automated environment. The system handles manifests and customs declarations, accounting procedures, transit, and suspense procedures. It generates trade data that can be used for statistical economic analysis.

The system considers the international codes and standards set by ISO the International Organization for Standardization, the WCO e.g Data Model, and the United Nations. It can be configured to suit individual Customs regimes, national characteristics, national tariffs, and legislation. ASYCUDA provides Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between traders and Customs using prevailing standards such as XML.

Through its ASYCUDA programme, UNCTAD aims at:

  • Modernizing customs operations and helping to improve revenue collection;
  • Facilitating trade efficiency and competitiveness by substantially reducing transaction time and costs;
  • Improving security by streamlining procedures of cargo control, the transit of goods, and clearance of goods;
  • Helping fight corruption by enhancing the transparency of transactions; and
  • Promoting sustainable development by cutting down on paper use by electronic transactions and documents.
