Risk Management for Cargo and Passengers: A Knowledge and Capacity Product
AbstractBorder control agencies, including customs authorities, face major challenges balancing a country's need for controls with the benefits of facilitating cross-border traffic in people and goods. To better manage the growing volume of travelers and trade, a significant number of leading customs administrations has adopted risk management as the guiding principle for border management. Systematically implementing risk management at strategic, operational, and tactical levels ensures that customs administrations best deploy resources to protect their citizens from threats to health, safety, and security, while simultaneously supporting economic growth by maintaining efficient and predictable cross-border transit times.
