Illicit trade is now thought to represent between 7% and 10% of the global economy. The World Customs Organization & the EU are urging the international community to implement better Risk-Management Systems and advanced selectivity, profiling & targeting methods


Effective risk management of the movement of goods through the international supply chain is critical for security and safety and essential to facilitating legitimate trade and protecting the financial and economic interest of the government.


Customs authorities should decide, based on the seriousness of the risk posed, whether checks are needed and, if so, whether at the border or at the place of unloading. If the risk analysis is positive, the results can be sent to the relevant customs authority.


Head of Unit, Risk Management and Security | European Commission
