IFCBA 2022 Conference

The IFCBA held a very successful conference last week in Singapore, welcoming customs brokers from 12 countries in Asia, North and South America, the Caribbean, and Africa, and celebrating the IFCBA’s 30th anniversary. A focus was on the World Customs Organization (WCO) study review of the Harmonized System of Tariff Classification

The conference opened with a warm welcome and congratulations from Dr. Kunio Mikuriya, Secretary General of the WCO. Listening to Dr. Mikuriya, there can be no doubt about the value of customs brokers and the value of business to customs administrations and the WCO. We hope you will share this message with your own members.


Please mark your calendars for January 19, when we will hold a virtual meeting of the IFCBA Board of Directors. We hope you can attend, so please watch for further details.

On behalf of the IFCBA Secretariat, I send best wishes to all IFCBA members for a happy and healthy holiday season, and all the very best in 2023.



Carol West

Secretary, IFCBA
