Today KGH Customs Services announced its flagship online programme, the European Customs Law Accredited Training programme (ECLAT), the most inclusive, innovative training programme of its kind.

ECLAT provides comprehensive, unrivalled coverage of all aspects of EU customs law and procedures. For companies, ECLAT facilitates the development of a fully skilled workforce that meets the EU’s Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) requirements, and helps to mitigate the risk of non-compliance. At the same time, it serves as an ideal platform for an individual’s personal development by helping them to perform their work more effectively and maximise their employment potential.

The comprehensive ECLAT programme has been developed in collaboration with the Centre for Customs and Excise Studies (CCES) at Australia’s Charles Sturt University, the world’s leading customs university. While each of the 16 topics may be taken individually, successful completion of the entire programme provides advanced standing in the CCES Master of Customs Administration, which is formally recognised by the World Customs Organization.
The program utilises the latest in learning techniques such as the UCC Navigator, a web-based learning tool which allows you to navigate complex EU customs law at a click.


“We are very pleased to offer our new leading-edge ECLAT programme,” said Lars Börjesson, CEO of KGH. “This top-quality programme complements the existing comprehensive range of KGH educational services by adding the flexibility of self-paced online learning, and is fully supported by a team of expert practitioners, teachers and academics, including the leading professionals in their field.”

“Studying online is both time efficient and cost effective,” adds David Widdowson, Director of the newly established KGH Trade and Customs Academy, which is a joint initiative of KGH Customs Services and CCES. “It is a convenient way to significantly increase your knowledge and skills, and provides the flexibility to meet ongoing work commitments without the need to attend lectures or workshops, which often involves costly travel away from work and home life.”
