The Commission launches the 2020 cycle of the EU Recognition for Customs academic programmes (Bachelor’s, Master’s, and modules within those programmes).
The Commission launches the 2020 cycle of the EU Recognition for Customs academic programmes (Bachelor’s, Master’s, and modules within those programmes). The aim is to equip students with the optimal competencies to engage in – or further advance in – their Customs career, both in public and in private sectors. Such recognised academic programmes are expected to significantly contribute to the rise of Customs performance and professionalism.
Recognised Customs academic programmes (or modules thereof) can make use of the official EU Customs Certificate of Recognition identification statement and will be included in the publicly available list of EU Recognised Customs Academic Programmes
Therefore, we invite academic institutions, interested in obtaining the EU Certificate of Recognition acknowledging the quality of their customs specific study programmes with a label of excellence awarded by the European Commission, to submit their application by 31 December 2019. For the academia that expressed their interest by sending initiation requests, the deadline for the 2020 cycle complete applications is prolonged until 31 January 2020. The process to obtain the EU Certificate of Recognition is based on the EU Competency Framework for Customs (CustCompeu) and explained in the Application Guide.
All further documentation on the EU Recognition process is available online.
For more information you can contact the EU Certificate of Recognition Secretariat.
