The adoption of a risk management framework introduces risk-based decision making and procedures into the organization that enable a balance among control, facilitation and supply chain security to be maintained. The CEFTA Parties work together to establish modern risk-based compliance management. With the objective to facilitate free trade in goods, the CEFTA Customs Risk Management Strategy was adopted by the Recommendation no.1/2019 on 19 December 2019, in Tirana. The implementation of CEFTA Customs Risk Management Strategy remains one of the priorities for the period 2020-2024. The commitments derived from the Customs Risk Management Strategy 2020-2024 and the Roadmap of the Strategy are being implemented with the support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH through the EU funded project “Support to Facilitation of Trade between the CEFTA Parties”.
