Centre for customs and foreign trade law
Münster is the starting point of our nationwide activities and with good reason!
The university city is the centre of customs and foreign trade law in Germany. The university is home to the EFA (European Forum for Foreign Trade Law, Customs and Excise). The Department of Finance of the Federal University of Applied Sciences is also located in Münster and trains the senior service of the German customs administration. The Training and Research Centre of the Federal Fiscal Authority (BWZ), which is responsible for all training sites of the German customs administration is also situated in Münster. In addition, the Department of Science and Technology forms part of the BWZ and is responsible for examining commodities and issuing expert reports including binding tariff information.
The know-how which is concentrated at the University and University of Applied Sciences makes the AWA a valuable resource for companies.
