organized within the Border Management in Central Asia Programme (BOMCA), funded by the
BOMCA experts together with representatives of the Border Troops of the State Security Service of
the Republic of Uzbekistan will review the basic principles of risk analysis in relation to road
checkpoints. Participants will be acquainted with the principles of risk analysis developed by the
FRONTEX Agency and implemented in the EU countries - methods for preparing the analysis,
investigating signs of border violation, as well as the tasks and functions of the employees involved.

checkpoints) will be developed.
The first BOMCA operations in Central Asia began in 2003 and, since then, BOMCA has strengthened
the partnership between Central Asian Governments 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 9 th implementation phase (2015 - 2019).
