Saudi Customs Authority inaugurates Risk Management Center

RIYADH: Head of the Saudi Customs Authority governor Ahmad bin Abdel Aziz Al-Haqbani inaugurated the Risk Management and Targeting Center.
The center would seek to enhance the effectiveness of the customs’ risk management and develop a mechanism for targeting risks and threats through land, sea and air customs ports.
In addition, it would work on assessing possible threats and develop an effective strategy for potential risks and impacts associated with ports.
Al-Haqbani said establishing a center of this type falls in line with efforts of the Saudi Customs to achieve its strategic goals by transferring risk management from intensive targeting to smart targeting, through the analysis of cargo data and information.
He noted that this project will work on easing obstacles that face all customs work, and find sciatic solutions that would contribute to speeding up and increasing flexibility of the flow of imports, as well as reducing smuggling.
