SFS Chairman Roman Nasirov has signed an Agreement with the World Customs Organization on the use of the WCO CTS Programme which is a cargo manifest risk assessment solution developed by the WCO to enable its Members to carry out international best practice cargo risk assessment to manage risk and facilitate trade and thus implement key parts of the WCO’s SAFE Framework of Standards and Kyoto Convention. From the WCO the Agreement was signed by Ray McDonagh, Head of Administration and Personnel.

The U.S. Government will finance the implementation of this system for the SFS within the framework of the export control and border security program. Further support of the system will be free of charge.

This will allow the SFS to get more precise, structured and unified preliminary information about goods coming to the seaports of Ukraine in containers that will improve the efficiency of risk management and, as a consequence, facilitate and speed up customs formalities in ports.
