The role of customs agencies around the world has changed over the years from a primary focus on revenue collection and import taxes aimed at protection of economic interests and society, to trade facilitation and reduction of administrative burden, and towards a significantly increasing role in safety and security.
Today Customs Administrations are faced with increasing volumes of international trade, new business models, sophisticated fraud and increasing security threats, therefore more efficient supervision of cargo movement across end-to-end trade chains, effective evaluation of risks across trade patterns and the creation of trusted networks is essential.
The INTRASOFT Transactional Risk Analysis component is tailored to the demands of customs organisations. It provides real-time screening of declarations, manifests etc., with pre-configured multi-phase analysis to facilitate: interception of high-risk situations, risk scoring with classification into treatment streams (e.g. red, yellow, green), and random sampling. Behavioural profiles of traders, economic operators, ports, or other entities are performed by applying knowledge base rules to multi-dimensional data models to derive risk scores and observations. Results of the risk analysis are also used to identify and prioritise candidates for post-clearance audit.
All components of the INTRASOFT Compliance Suite can be combined and integrated with core customs processing systems to provide the optimal balance between the need for customs control and the goals of facilitating trade and reducing administrative burden.
