eTIR specifications

The eTIR specifications contain description of the TIR Procedure Computerization Project.
The eTIR specifications were first called the eTIR reference model and were developed following the UN/CEFACT Modelling Methodology (UMM).
The eTIR specifications (and the former reference model) are first intended to facilitate the work of the Informal ad hoc Expert Group on Conceptual and Technical Aspects of Computerization of the TIR Procedure and to provide modelling support. At various stages, versions of the eTIR specifications and the reference model have been and will be submitted to the Working Party on Customs Questions affecting Transport (WP.30) and the Administrative Committee for the TIR Convention (AC.2) for endorsement as well as for serving as reference for any future work in the eTIR Project.

On 25 May 2021, Annex 11 of the TIR Convention came into force. Annex 11 defines the eTIR specifications in Article 2 as well as its adoption and amendment procedures in Article 5.

The table below presents the various versions and the validation dates for the various parts and versions of the eTIR specifications and the reference model.
