The Customs and Excise Administration (ADII) and the Renault Maroc Group seal their partnership by signing an agreement and a memorandum of understanding

By making support for large-scale projects and foreign investments in Morocco a priority, Customs seeks to build a lasting and constructive partnership with foreign companies established in Morocco in order to provide them with quality support and assistance.

The Moroccan automobile industry, being today a regional actor of first rank, Customs is committed to accompany the development of this sector through the organization of direct meetings with the foreign investors, thus, making greater use of the relations of proximity offering effective and concrete solutions to their expectations.

Within this framework, an ADII-RENAULT Steering Committee co-chaired by the General Manager of ADII, Mr. Nabyl LAKHDAR, and the General Manager of the Renault Morocco Group, Mr. Marc NASSIF, with the presence of the General Manager of the Renault Tangier Plant, Mr. Jean-François GAL, met on 14th May 2018 at ADII headquarters.

Following this high-level meeting, a convention and a memorandum of understanding were signed between the two parties.

Renault Tangier plant has the OEA Safety-Security status

The signing of the agreement grants the Renault Tangiers plant the "Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) Safety and Security" label, positioning it as the third economic operator and the first operator installed in a free zone to benefit from this international quality label.

This status guarantees Customs the reliability of the certified company in terms of security and safety in the logistics chain. It also allows its holder to benefit from a personalized range of customs accommodations ranging from simplifying customs formalities to reducing the costs of customs clearance operations.

Renault Morocco Group and Customs undertake to combat counterfeiting

The memorandum of understanding concluded between Customs and the Renault Morocco Group aims to combat counterfeiting of trademarks held by the French automotive group.

The aim of this cooperation agreement is to strengthen border measures on counterfeiting and to develop cooperation between the two partners to combat this phenomenon and its negative impact on the national economy and the competitiveness of businesses more effectively.

With the signature of this memorandum of understanding, the Renault Morocco Group undertakes to make its expertise in this field available to the ADII through the implementation of in-depth technical training on Renault and Dacia products for the benefit of Moroccan customs officers in all the Kingdom's ports and the strengthening of bilateral cooperation in the field of information exchange.
