Advice and assistance in the implementation, maintenance, training and operation of scanners for customs or freight security controls.
One of the missions of customs and port authorities is to facilitate international trade while maintaining an appropriate level of control to limit smuggling and other illegal or terrorist activities. According to the recommendations of the World Customs Organisation (WCO) SAFE framework of standards, the revised 1999 Kyoto Convention, the ISPS Maritime Code and various national and international measures, customs and port authorities should preferably focus on non-destructive testing such as X-ray scanners combined with selectivity and risk management techniques.
