The Customs Control and Customs Duty Acts have been drafted with the view of aligning the current customs legislation with international requirements set out in the Revised Kyoto Convention on the simplification and harmonisation of customs procedures. This legislation was gazetted in 2014 and is expected to come into effect during the course of 2016. As such it is vital that all customs stakeholders understand the new regulatory regime. This seminar is aimed at giving you an overview of the most crucial areas of the new legislation.
