A new strategy to improve customs risk management, together with a detailed action plan, was adopted by the Commission on 21 August. Robust customs risk management is essential to protect the safety and security of the EU and its citizens, the interests of legitimate traders and EU financial interests, while at the same time enabling the smooth flow of trade. As the volume of trade grows and the international supply chain becomes ever more complex and fast-moving, the framework for customs risk management needs to be adapted and developed accordingly.
The European Commission is the EU's executive body and represents the interests of Europe as a whole (as opposed to the interests of individual countries).
