STCE Awareness Workshop for Senior Executive Management of Customs of Indonesia

29 十月 2021

Within the framework of the COPES-STCE Project, the Strategic Trade Control Enforcement (STCE) Programme held on October 26 and 27 a virtual Awareness Workshop for Senior Managers, with the aim to highlight the importance of the development of a functional and efficient strategic trade control national system.

The training course brought together 20 Senior Executive Officers from Indonesia Customs. The training was delivered online both in English and Bahasa.

The Workshop focused on the role of the senior management in enabling and supporting activities combatting illicit trade of Weapons of Mass Destruction and related items. In particular, the WCO emphasized the Customs security mandate established by the Punta Cana Resolution and the International legal framework governing strategic trade control.

An assessment tool using maturity models, newly created within the Customs Operational Practices for Enforcement and Seizures (COPES) Programme, was then presented. This tool was first introduced during the last Enforcement Committee. The assessment process is split into three stages: self-assessment, on-site assessment by experts and the issuing of a report with recommendations.

The COPES-STCE Project also invited participants from Indonesia Customs to discuss how to develop a national STCE framework.

The WCO would like to offer its heartfelt thanks to Indonesia Customs for their ongoing cooperation and EXBS (the donor) for its financial support and expertise on the ground.
