The World Customs Organization (WCO) Safe Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Trade (SAFE) rests on two pillars; Customs-Customs network and Customs to business partnerships. It is complemented by a capacity building programme – known as the “Columbus Programme”. Core elements of the SAFE Framework are: Harmonizing advance cargo information; Introducing risk management approach; Sending country’s customs inspection of high-risk containers by customs authorities; and Benefits program for compliant traders. Timor-Leste is not currently a signatory of the WCO SAFE, however, many of the new processes and procedures that we develop are compliant with the underlying principles contained within the framework.
