Whereas the International Convention on the Harmonization of Frontier Controls of Goods, concluded at Geneva on 21 October 1982, introduces provisions intended to facilitate the international movement of goods, to contribute to the progressive abolition of barriers to trade and to promote the development of world trade, thus attaining objectives consistent with those of the commercial policy of the European Economic Community;
