c21associates delivers advice and pragmatic solutions on all aspects of Customs and Border Management.

After many years experience working in Customs reform c21associates reached the conclusion that ministers and Customs senior managers required a higher and better quality of independent advice on how to modernise their Customs administrations.

The advice we provide takes full cognisance of national priorities and we help to tailor and source the exact development required.

Our Mission is to promote the development of effective border management organisations by:

  • Equipping clients with the ability to establish and control their own destiny and influence others
  • Representing the national interest, including at regional and international levels
  • Remaining highly ethical by providing what is actually needed in a tailored and cost-effective approach
  • Providing capacity building at the earliest opportunity to optimise the use of external support
  • Sustainable Goals
    We work with local management to develop local programme teams to plan, design and implement pragmatic border reform. The engagement of local expertise is maximised so that realistic and sustainable national goals are achieved whilst working within framework of regional and international standards
  • We Provide Highly-Skilled Experts
    c21associates has a network of over 100 multi-lingual experts and associates all of whom are WCO accredited (or equivalent) as diagnostic and development experts
  • Why We Are Different
    Many Customs advisory service and donor-led projects provide assistance at an operational level but fail to address policy and managerial support which are crucial to sustaining progress and development. c21associates can provide advice and support on all aspects of Customs reform including providing managers at all levels with the support needed to nead effective organisational development
