27-31 May 2019, Bangkok, Thailand
Under the sponsorship of the CCF/Japan, the WCO Regional Workshop on the Accreditation of Technical and Operational Advisors (TOA) on IPR was held on 27 - 31 May 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. Ms. Saori Nojima, Program Manager of the ROCB A/P, participated in the Workshop as a facilitator along with two facilitators from the WCO Secretariat.
The Workshop aimed at establishing a pool of experts capable of independently leading legal advisory and institutional training activities on behalf of the WCO. 11 Customs officials, whose applications were pre-screened and qualified, were invited to participate in the Workshop. The participants were assessed against the requirements for WCO-accredited TOA especially on the IPR legal aspects through presentations, simulated interviews, role plays, group exercises and plenary discussions. Those who successfully demonstrated extensive knowledge as well as high competency in designing and delivering capacity building activities during this accreditation workshop were pre-accredited and they will be further invited to join subsequent WCO field missions to further demonstrate their performance for their full accreditation as the WCO TOA.
