26 April 2001

Following the retroactive acceptance of the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia of the TIR Convention, 1975 as of 27 April 1992, the date of State succession, the UN/ECE and the TIR secretariats assist the Customs authorities of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to establish, as soon as possible, the TIR procedure in and through this country.
Following the initiation of national measures, a meeting has been arranged with representatives of the Yugoslav Customs authorities, to be held on 21 and 22 May 2001 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, to finalize all necessary legal and administrative procedures to be undertaken by the competent authorities in this regard.
The International Road Transport Union (IRU), together with the competent national association (Yugoslav Chamber of Commerce and Industry), has also been requested to undertake all commercially related necessary steps to ensure an early introduction of the TIR procedure in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, including the distribution of TIR Carnets and the provision of the necessary international guarantee coverage for national and foreign TIR transport operators.
