The members of the multi-national “Working Group Customs and Blockchain” deal with the future application possibilities of blockchain technology in digital customs processing and its medium-term realization. The topic of customs is highly complex, and the processes are currently still heavily paper-based. In addition, since Brexit at the latest, further complex issues have been added, which make it necessary to discuss the topic of customs across countries and together with companies, associations and authorities.
With the Working Group Customs and Blockchain, Blockchain Europe wants to create a forum for customs experts to shape the future together in the spirit of open innovation.
What concrete benefits does the blockchain bring to customs authorities and what can these look like in concrete terms, e.g. in the form of a MVP? These and other questions will be discussed next time. we look forward to it.
