State Customs Committee (SCC) of Azerbaijan plans to transfer the customs registration to the "single window" principle, SCC said.

On 11 November 2008, the President of Azerbaijan issued a decree on the implementation of the "single window" principle in the inspection of goods and vehicles at checkpoints of state borders from 1 January 2009.
