As the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) came into effect on the 22nd of February, 2017 and Sri Lanka being a signatory has numerous obligations to fulfill in order to meet the standards to improve the transparency and predictability of trading across borders and to create a less discriminating environment. In line with the government’s efforts to fulfill these obligations Sri Lanka Customs has already developed a strategic approach towards the implementation of the WCO SAFE Framework of Standards. As part of this strategic approach, Sri Lanka Customs has decided to implement a robust Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) Framework in line with the WCO SAFE Framework of Standards and other international standards.
