Alan Froy's CV
40 years with HM Customs and Excise/HM Revenue and Customs and Excise (1965 to July 2005). At various times I have worked on VAT, Excise, Accounting, Statistics, and International Trade
Over two 'tours' I have worked for 20 years in the Tariff area, primarily on Tariff Classification. I have acted as UK representative in the following international committees:
Binding Tariff Information
Classification - Agriculture/Chemicals, Textiles,
Ad Hoc Working Groups and Seminars
World Customs Organisation (WCO)
Head of HM Customs Tariff Classification Service
Has given me a good working knowledge at all levels.
My experience in delivering practical tariff classification training in about 30 countries worldwide, when added to the above, means that there are few - if any - people in the world more qualified or experienced in this specialised field.
I have also been involved with the HS2007 changes
and Consequential CN and Explanatory Note changes, and the revised Customs Code - mainly regarding Binding Tariff Information
