 - This system is aimed at the introduction of international customs service standards, at declaring goods electronically and at the implementation of a one stop shop principle, that is, interaction with all information bodies, with all information systems of all state bodies inside our country. In my opinion, Kazakhstan is the leader in the introduction of international standards in customs legislation. Our legislation meets all the basic principles.
