The European Union Customs Competency Framework (EU Customs CFW) aims at harmonising and raising customs performance standards throughout the EU.
It has been developed in collaboration with public and private experts from EU countries, the World Customs Organization (WCO) and other international sources.
There are two versions of the EU Customs CFW
The EU Customs CFW is the foundation which sets out a consensus view of knowledge, skills and behaviours required by customs professionals in the EU.
It also further defines public and private Customs roles (‘Job profiles’).
In addition, it offers tools to map and adapt the agreed EU Customs competencies and role descriptions to different customs organisations and structures, both for national administrations and businesses.
It allows to:
The framework includes four groups of competencies:
The meaning and scope of the four categories and each competency are set out in the ‘EU Customs Competency Dictionary.
All competencies are further specified with well-defined proficiency levels
Public and private sector core customs roles (or so-called ‘job descriptions’) complete the EU Customs CFW package.
Building on this framework, two European Training Curricula for Customs have been developed, one for the public sector, one for the private sector.
These curricula set out the ‘Learning Topics’ and ‘Learning Outcomes’ for training programmes that are tailored towards customs professionals working in the European Union.
In addition, a set of Reference Training Programmes has been created for training providers as a basis for comparison to build or enhance their training programme structures and training materials.
An EU Recognition Process for customs training programmes is being developed which should make it possible to deliver a quality label for the accredited Customs Training programmes (Masters, Bachelors, Expert modules or vocational training courses).
This will give a quality assurance to the trainees and help to further harmonise and raise customs performance standards throughout the European Customs Union.
