About International Customs Day
Instituted by the World Customs Organization (WCO),
International Customs Day is held on January 26, which commemorates the day in
1953 when the inaugural session of the Customs Cooperation Council (CCC) was
held in Brussels, Belgium. Seventeen European countries attended this session.
In 1994 the CCC was renamed World Customs Organization (WCO) and today custom
organizations from 179 countries are WCO members.
Celebrate International Customs Day
Custom agencies hold employee appreciation events where
custom officers are recognized for their exemplary service. Workshops,
conferences and talks that focus on the year’s theme and the challenges that
agencies and officers face are also held. Several
agencies also hold public outreach events where they educate the public about
their jobs and responsibilities.
