Cooperation with international organisations

Being well represented in international bodies is important for safeguarding Swiss interests in customs matters. This is ensured by means of long-term staff deployments.

Employees bring their expert knowledge to bear on behalf of the FCA. Both parties benefit from this exchange of experience - our employees can contribute a great deal of experience to daily operations after they return, for example.

Employees hold positions in these international organisations for a period of two to five years:

European Commission (EU), Directorate-General for Taxation and Customs Union (TAXUD)

European Free Trade Association (EFTA), Secretariat

World Customs Organization (WCO) in various divisions of the Secretariat and in the Regional Intelligence Liaison Office for Western Europe (RILO WE)

Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)
