The aim of the code system is to facilitate and standardize the process of informing carriers and customs authorities in different Contracting Parties as well as other bodies involved in the TIR system of defects in the load compartments of vehicles approved for the TIR procedure. The Recommendation will come into effect on 1 October 2015 and will be reviewed after two years. Competent authorities are strongly encouraged to apply the Recommendation and its coding system.
