Re-establishment of the TIR Customs transit system in Yugoslavia

On 27 September 2001, following constructive negotiations, an agreement regulating between the Federal Cutoms Administration of Yugoslavia and the Yugoslav Chamber of Commerce has been signed which provides the legal and administrative basis for the re-establishment of the TIR Customs transit system in Yugoslavia. The Agreement will enter into force once the necessary gurantee arrangements have been put in place by the Yugoslav Chamber of Commerce, the IRU and the international insurers. It is hoped that these arrangements can be set up in the next few weeks so that TIR operations in and with the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia can be started.

The TIR Executive Board (TIRExB) and the TIR Secretariat, in cooperation with the Federal Customs Administration of Yugoslavia, had organized a Workshop in Belgrade on 25 and 26 July 2001 for high level Customs officials and chiefs of important Customs posts. This Workshop provided information on the latest developments in the TIR system and was followed by Seminars for local Customs officials in the various Customs border posts in Yugoslavia.

The TIR Executive Board (TIRExB) and the TIR secretariat congratulate the Federal Customs Administration of Yugoslavia for the efficient and constructive work undertaken in this respect as well as for their cooperative spirit, shown also by the Yugoslav Chamber of Commerce, in re-establishing the TIR Customs Transit System in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
