TEHRAN, Feb. 19 (MNA) – For the first time in 32 years, an Iranian national has been appointed as member of TIR Executive Board (TIRExB).
From Iranian Customs Administration (ICA), Mr. Mostafa Ayati was elected by unanimous vote as a member of the TIR Executive Board (TIRExB), a subsidiary body of the TIR Administrative Committee which is composed of 9 members.
TIRExB election took place during the sixtieth session of the TIR Administrative Committee in Geneva on 15-16 February 2017.
The Convention has 28 members from the European Union (EU), America, China, Russia, CIS countries, Caucasus and Turkey. Previously, Iranians had been nominated for the position for three times though they failed to receive enough number votes.
TIR Executive Board (TIRExB), a subsidiary body of the TIR Administrative Committee, is composed of 9 members, each from different Contracting Parties to the TIR Convention. The TIRExB supervises and provides support in the application of the TIR procedure at the national and international levels.
The Customs Convention on the International Transport of Goods under Cover of TIR Carnets (TIR Convention, 1975) is one of the most successful international transport conventions and is so far the only universal Customs transit system in existence. To date, it has 70 Contracting Parties, including the European Union. It covers the whole of Europe and reaches out to North Africa and the Near and Middle East. More than 35,000 operators are authorized to use the TIR system and around 3 million TIR transports are carried out per year.
The TIR Convention facilitates the international carriage of goods from one or more customs offices of departure to one or more customs offices of destination and through as many countries as necessary.
