With its recognition as RCL, CRCL joins a select group of Customs Laboratories in the region like those in Japan & Korea.  On this occasion, Secretary General Mr. KunioMikuriya complimented the Indian Customs Administration and the CRCL for achieving this distinction.  Mr. M. Ajit Kumar, Chairman, CBIC underlined the active role played by India in Customs co-operation and reiterated the commitment of Indian Customs Administration to play a leading role in the region through this newly recognised Regional Customs Laboratory.
