In April and May 2019, the Regional Intelligence Liaison Office for the Commonwealth of Independent States (RILO CIS) welcomed its National Contact Points (NCP) from Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan Customs for a five-day training course at the RILO office in Moscow.

The main objective of the course was to demonstrate to new NCPs the use of the main WCO enforcement tools, namely the Customs Enforcement Network (CEN) application and the Customs Enforcement Network Communication (CENcomm) platform. The participants of the course were trained to enter seizure data into the CEN correctly and to download data for analytical purposes in order to identify trends with regards to specific types of goods, as well as employed routes and means of illicit trafficking of these goods.

In addition, participants of the course developed their skills through practical exercises with regards to the use of the RILO CIS CENcomm Platform which enables sharing of law enforcement information safely and confidentially.

At the conclusion of the course participants expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to attend these types of workshops, which contribute to the improvement of the work done by NCPs.
