On March 27-29, 2019 Tashkent hosts a seminar on improving the efficiency of the customs control system, organized within the framework of the Border Management Program in Central Asia (BOMCA), funded by the European Union.
Representatives of the State Revenue Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan present their experience in introducing a risk management system for practitioners of the State Customs Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the teaching staff of the Customs Institute of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Participants study the experience of organizing effective risk management at all levels of customs service (checkpoint, regional and central levels), familiarize themselves with the legal basis for the application of the risk management system, information collection and processing tools. Using the example of Kazakhstan, experts familiarize participants with effective methods of risk assessment, identifying indicators and ways to minimize risks.
This BOMCA initiative is aimed at supporting cooperation between the educational institutions of the border and customs departments of the countries of Central Asia.
The first events of the BOMCA program were held in 2003 and since then the Program has been one of the key partners of the governments of the Central Asia countries in the field of border management. The European Union allocated a sum of EUR 40, 1 million to BOMCA for the period of 2003 – 2019, out of which EUR 6,6 million were assigned to its 9th implementation phase (2015 - 2019).
