Further information:

Regulation (EU) No 1294/2013 established the Customs 2020 programme as a multiannual action programme for customs in the EU to facilitate and strengthen cooperation between national administrations.

The report aims to chart the progress made in (i) the achievement of the programme’s objectives; (ii) the efficiency of resource usage and aspects of simplification; (iii) the continued relevance of the programme; (iv) its coherence with and contribution to the EU’s broader policies and other initiatives; and (v) the added value of the programme at EU level.
