Abstract: 
The World Customs Organization (WCO, Organization Mondiale des Dounaes, OMD) is an intergovernmental organization of more than 170 Member States. It is of tremendous importance for the simplification of international trade and customs procedures; however, its modes of action and decision-making processes have been very secretive for a very long time. Only in very recent years the WCO has decided to open up (in particular by help of the internet) and it now explains its ways of action. This paper gives an overview of the WCO structures, committees, and functions.
