The VIC Commissary imports and sells, tax and duty free, to staff of the IAEA, UNIDO, UNOV, CTBTO and other approved international organizations, and to members of Permanent Missions accredited to one or more of these international organizations, such categories of consumer goods as defined in the IAEA Headquarters Agreement.
