  5. WCO DATA MODEL • RKC Customs Data Principles: • Common data sets and uniform electronic messages for cargo reporting and import/export declarations, aligned on the UNTDED • Maximum data requirements for routine Customs/trade exchanges of information • Release on minimal information i.e. two step process, separate admissibility from fiscal controls

  6. WCO DATA MODEL (cont’d) • EDIFACT MIGs, + XML specifications in future • Code Standards: ISO, ECE Recommendations HS and UCR

  7. UNeDOCS DATA MODEL • Future standards for international trade docs, paper and electronic versions • Data Model for a Master Document • Based on UN Layout Key and UNTDED • Different syntax applications i.e. XML or EDIFACT • Electronic message or paper document or edoc

  8. SINGLE WINDOW SYSTEMS • EXPRESS INDUSTRY VIEW: • Single submission to a single designated entry point, ideally Customs, of standardised information, in electronic format, to fulfil all official control and release purposes • Legal framework must be in place to support standardised data requirements and information sharing; data privacy and protection laws

  9. EXPRESS INDUSTRY TRADE FACILITATION OBJECTIVES • Separation of physical control (release and admissibility) from fiscal control (duty and tax payments) • Minimal, standardised data for release/clearance purposes • Application of automated systems to allow for: - electronic transmission & processing of pre-arrival shipment information, to enable immediate release - elimination of all paper documents - use of risk management techniques for control purposes - electronic funds transfers for duty/tax payments - “Single Window” systems
