OECD Task Force on Countering Illicit Trade (ITF-CIT) 2016 meeting


4th meeting of the OECD Task Force on Countering Illicit Trade

OECD, Paris, 18-19 April 2016

The Task Force on Countering Illicit Trade (TC-CIT) meets as part of the OECD High Level Risk Forum of the Public Governance Committee (PGC). The goal of the Task force is to promote tractable policy reforms and to foster international cooperation aimed at the reduction and deterrence of illicit trade.

In 2015, the Task Force on Charting Illicit Trade (TF-CIT) completed its first phase with the publication of "Illicit Trade: Converging Criminal Networks". The report provides an overview on the state of knowledge about the volumes and flows of trade in several sectors of prohibited goods. It also recognizes that public and private sector decision makers need to explore in greater granularity the governance gaps that criminal entrepreneurs successfully navigate to operate across borders.

For this reason, in 2016 the second phase of the TF-CIT will focus on how to enhance the co-ordination capacity and risk awareness of enforcement bodies, and it is re-named the Task Force on Countering Illicit Trade to reflect this new emphasis.

Governments will be invited to share their experience and views in terms of enforcement policy initiatives, with a policy dialogue involving Task force members from industry, think tanks and academia. The meeting discussed on-going work under the Task force related to counterfeit trade and the enhancement of public-private partnerships such as those to map and visualize illicit networks. It also considered new proposals from members on where efforts over the course of Phase 2 could produce outputs with policy impact.
