C2013 B_001 - Contact Group for Southern Ports (E00962)
Group which operates on a permanent basis
TAXUD - Taxation and Customs Union DG
The contact group is established with the aim to create a network of customs experts and managers working at the EU ports that allows exchange of information and best practices to support actions to prevent irregularities, in particular through the rapid provision of information on risks to front line customs posts, and to identify, develop and apply best working practices, in particular in the areas of risk analysis and customs controls at the sea ports. This group keeps on ensuring the continuation of work undertaken and address control issues and operational co-operation and co-ordination with regard to controls at the external frontier. Expected results: Improved co-operation among front line officers, sharing of best practices, risk information and common control actions. The long term objective is that these ports work spontaneously together.
