Some 10 Customs officers from PCA and PCA-related sections attended this Workshop, led by the following experts: Mr. Matthias Just from German Customs and Mr. Jari Saloniemi from Finnish Customs.

During the five-day Workshop, participants could actively participate in practical exercises and many questions were raised that resulted in highly interactive and fruitful discussions.
