ICC and WTO release toolkit for cross-border paperless trade

18/03/2022

This toolkit, developed by ICC and the World Trade Organization, is designed to help companies and government agencies adopt available standards to accelerate the digitalization of trade processes. 

It has been developed as part of the ICC’s Digital Standards initiative to provide the international trade community with, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of existing digital trade standards that can be used to facilitate trusted, real-time supply chain collaboration and real-time data exchange.

The toolkit identifies close to 100 available standards, frameworks and initiatives that offer the potential to enable all parties in global supply chains to speak the same, universal language – regardless of the tools used to automate processes – by leveraging a core set of standardised trade-related document and data formats.

The report maps a range of foundational standards for adoption by all participants in global trade – such as country codes to legal entity identifier standards – while also incorporating starting toolkits for various types of supply chain actors, from logistics operators to customs authorities.

The toolkit can be downloaded here
