The World Customs Organisation (WCO) Strategic Trade Control Enforcement (STCE) implementation guide responds to requests from States for practical assistance related to enforcing strategic trade controls. Strategic trade controls apply to strategic goods: weapons of mass destruction (WMD), conventional weapons, and related items involved in the development, production, or use of such weapons and their delivery systems. The guide is intended to assist WCO Members in the development and review of their Strategic Trade Control Enforcement processes and procedures and provide a framework for implementing relevant training activities. It is divided into two principal sections, one for senior Customs managers and policy officials and one for operational Customs officers. The guide can also serve as a reference manual on the implementation of the provisions of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1540.
