Standards & Customs Working Group

What we do:

The Standards & Customs Working Group monitors the IELA Standards of Performance for domestic agents and export agents to ensure they continue to fully reflect technological and commercial changes within the industry. The Working Group is responsible for the implementation and updating of all standard forms and documents produced by IELA as well as the continuous development of the IELA Articles and By-laws. Health & Safety, ISO international standards and its derivatives and member compliance with national or regional rules & regulations all come within the remit of the Standards Working Group.

The Group is also responsible for maintaining and updating the IELA Customs Manual which contains information relevant to the movement of exhibition cargo across Customs borders around the world.

The Working Group also looks for ways in which to assist members through news and information in the IELA Report.
