Introduction

The  programme aims  to promote the formation of alliances between the Customs, trade and enforcement communities as a joint means to prevent the abuse of  legitimate commercial trade for  the purposes of organized crime. Furthermore it facilitates cooperation with relevant international agencies involved in regulating and monitoring world-wide container traffic.

Benefits of the Programme

The  Container Control Programme provides a comprehensive basis for Joint Port Control Units to exchange information and intelligence, and use risk assessment and targeting techniques to identify high-risk consignments for law enforcement scrutiny without hindering the free flow of legitimate trade. As a result, national customs and other enforcement agencies have been able to -

•       Build technical understanding and expand expertise in core  areas, such  as risk management, intelligence, ITC  systems, external relations, trade partnerships, legislation, integrity, port security, concealment methods, and ship rummaging.

•       Develop participative group interaction on interdiction of contrabands etc.

•       Gain efficient understanding to be able to apply modern control measures that  secure borders and comply with existing supply chain security standards.

•       Acquainted with WCO, UNODC and other trade and law enforcement related  conventions, instruments, best practice approaches and useful reference materials that can  assist the work of  the Joint Port Control Units.

•       Gain an understanding of sustainable capacity building programmes.

Joint Task Forces

The Task Force under the Programme comprises -

•       Officials from Customs, the Police, Border Guards, the Public Prosecutors Office, seaport authorities, and other relevant agencies.

•       Private sector representatives involved, such as port and terminal operators, in any of the areas relevant to the Programme.
