In a positive development, the World Customs Organisation (WCO) recognised Central Revenues Control Laboratory CRCL, as a regional customs laboratory for Asia Pacific.


What is CRCL?

  • The CRCL is working under the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs, CBIC.
  • Established in 1939, CRCL is the headquarters of 14 Revenue Laboratories, including 2 laboratories working at Government Opium and Alkaloid Works, Ghazipur and Neemuch.
  • These laboratories have been upgraded extensively in the past 3 years and new state-of-art equipment costing about 80 crore rupees have been installed.
  • With the introduction of instrument based testing, Revenue Laboratories are, now, facilitating faster clearances, without compromising on law enforcement and thereby playing a vital role in trade facilitation.
  • With its recognition as RCL, CRCL joins a select group of Customs Laboratories in the region like those in Japan & Korea. 

World Customs Organization

  • The World Customs Organization is an intergovernmental organization headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.
  • It was set up to make customs administrations around the world more efficient, coordinated and effective.
