Netherlands And Canada Sign Customs Treaty

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

18 September 2007


The Netherlands and Canada have concluded a Customs Treaty which provides a framework for more effective cooperation and exchange of information between the customs authorities of the two nations.

The Treaty was concluded in August and signed on behalf of the Netherlands government by Ambassador De Beer, and on behalf of the Canadian government by Alain Jolicoeur, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency.

The Treaty provides a legal basis for closer administrative cooperation between the customs services of both countries. The intended cooperation concerns both the supervision of proper compliance with the customs legislation and the prevention, investigation and combating of violations of the legislation. The treaty is focused on the prevention of customs fraud by a rapid and efficient exchange of information.

The Dutch Ministry of Finance stated this week that once the Netherlands Council of State has given its advice, the Treaty will be submitted to the States General for approval.
