Terms of Use


The UNECE TIR secretariat draws the attention to the fact that, in accordance with the provisions of the TIR Convention, 1975, Contracting Parties are responsible for the collection and transmission of information to the TIRExB and the ITDB. Thus, the UNECE TIR secretariat cannot be held responsible for any omissions. The UNECE TIR secretariat maintains the ITDB on behalf of the TIRExB, pursuant to a mandate of the UNECE TIR secretariat under the Convention and the Terms of Reference of the TIRExB. Contracting Parties, their designated customs officials and focal points from the private sector are the sole intended users of the information contained in the ITDB. No other person, or entity, shall have any rights whatsoever, relating to the information contained in the ITDB.

The content of the information transmitted by the Contracting Parties to the UNECE secretariat, and in particular information provided by a Contracting Party under Article 38, has been determined by the transmitting Contracting Party, and the UNECE TIR secretariat has thus not been involved in determining the content nor has it made any attempt to ascertain the accuracy of such information. As such, the information provided in the ITDB is provided "as is", without warranty of any kind. The UNECE TIR secretariat specifically does not make any warranties as to the accuracy or completeness of the information provided in the ITDB. Under no circumstances shall the UNECE TIR secretariat be liable for any loss, damage, liability or expense incurred or suffered that is claimed to have resulted from the use of the ITDB, including, without limitation, any fault, error, omission, interruption or delay with respect thereto. Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, shall the UNECE TIR secretariat be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, even if the UNECE TIR secretariat has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

The user of the ITDB specifically acknowledges and agrees that the UNECE TIR secretariat is not liable for any conduct of any Contracting Party, pursuant to disclosure by the UNECE TIR secretariat, of information in the ITDB, in particular with regard to information provided under Article 38 of the TIR Convention.
