Our Partners


The Centre for Customs and Excise Studies (CCES) at Charles Sturt University is the world’s leading provider of training and education in the highly specialised areas of customs and cross-border regulation. Recognised by the World Customs Organization (WCO) and our peers as international leaders in this field of education, we play a key role in establishing and maintaining the WCO Professional Standards.

The WCO has officially recognised less than 20 academic programs that comply fully with the WCO Professional Standards, eight of which have been developed by CCES. For this reason, CCES is the trainer of choice for the international trading community and customs administrations around the world, as reflected in our client base which includes customs, other government agencies, international organisations and private companies in over 180 countries.

CCES research activities include comprehensive studies in areas such as free trade agreements, supply chain security, cooperative border management, customs reform and modernisation, risk management, regulatory compliance management and trade facilitation. In relation to trade facilitation, CCES has for many years played a leading role in promoting the WTO trade facilitation agenda, and as early as 2007 worked closely with the WTO, World Bank and other organisations to develop the WTO Trade Facilitation Self-Assessment Guide, a contribution which has been formally recognised by the Secretary General of the WTO.

The ECA and CCES partnership to deliver international trader education means that participation in the ECA International Business Journey program can be the first step on an articulated learning pathway to completion of the Advanced Diploma of International Business Management, which in turn can provide significant credit towards a CSU degree program such as the Bachelor of Business, Graduate Certificate in Business and the Bachelor of Border Management.




In a corner space in Sydney's MLC Centre, Servcorp was founded in 1978 by Alf Moufarrige who like any new business starting out, required office space, a receptionist and secretarial support.

He quickly acknowledged that the overheads were eating into his profits so he looked to share the space, share the receptionist, share the costs and reduce the overheads. The idea of Servcorp began! As Mr. Moufarrige sold one office, he acquired the next. With enthusiasm, passion and clear vision of this new concept, the space quickly grew to one-quarter of a floor with 16 offices. Today Servcorp is operating in 150 locations in 52 cities and across 21 countries.
