Article Comparison - Convention on the Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations

Section 7

The United Nations, its assets, income and other property shall be:

a) exempt from all direct taxes; it is understood, however, that the United Nations will not claim exemption from taxes which are, in fact, no more than charges for public utility services;

b) exempt from customs duties and prohibitions and restrictions on imports and exports in respect of articles imported or exported by the United Nations for its official use. It is understood, however, that articles imported under such exemption will not be sold in the country into which they were imported except under conditions agreed with the Government of that country;

c) exempt from customs duties and prohibitions and restrictions on imports and exports in respect of its publications.
