Risk Management for Customs

The European Commission on 21 August 2014 adopted a Communication on EU Strategy and Action Plan for customs risk management: Tackling risks, strengthening supply chain security and facilitating trade.

The new strategy seeks to ensure that customs is more coherent, efficient and cost effective in identifying and supervising supply chain risks, in a way that reflects today's realities. The action plan sets out specific measures to achieve this, together with the actors responsible and clear deadlines for doing so.
