Risk Management In Customs Procedures
A common characteristic of Customs work is the high volume of transactions and the impossibility of checking all of them. Customs administrations therefore face the challenge of facilitating the movement of legitimate passengers and cargo while applying controls to detect Customs fraud and other offences. Customs services find themselves increasingly under pressure from national governments and international organizations to facilitate the clearance of legitimate passengers and cargo while also responding to increase in transactional crime and terrorism. These competing interests mean that it is necessary to find a balance between facilitation and control.
