About the Authors
  • This guide to the WTO Customs Valuation Agreement is based on the authors' experiences of teaching its finer points to customs officials and policy-makers around the world. Covering the methods of valuation and the provisions on enforcement, implementation and dispute settlement, the authors give practical examples, explain interpretative decisions of national and international customs bodies, and analyse the history of its negotiation. Written as a learning tool, it helps both new and experienced policy-makers, customs officials, importers and exporters to gain a deeper understanding of the Agreement's function and aims.

    • Review questions allow readers to monitor their understanding of the material presented
    • Appendix includes key legal texts and interpretative materials, providing readers with a self-contained reference guide
    • In-depth discussion of Agreement-negotiating history gives readers an idea of the original intentions of the drafters

    Excellent. I recommend this book for all Customs administrations worldwide. A very useful tool for all officers involved in valuation. A reference copy in all Customs Libraries will be a very good thing.
