Both the FCA and the OSCE took the opportunity of the 2014 Swiss OSCE Chairmanship to intensify their bonds and provide technical assistance to the Kyrgyz Customs service.”

In July 2014, the Federal Customs Administration of Switzerland and the Kyrgyz State Customs Service reached an agreement on the delivery of a three-week training course in September and October 2014 for seven instructors of the Kyrgyz Customs on applying the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (also known as the "Harmonized System"), an internationally standardized system of names and numbers to classify traded products.
