Study Visit to Rotterdam for Malaysian Officials

Study Visit to Rotterdam for Malaysian Officials

Dual-Use

Event date: 22/08/2017 - 24/08/2017

On 22 – 24 August 2017, a delegation of Malaysian officials participated in a Study Visit in Rotterdam hosted by the Dutch Customs Administration and organized by the Expertise France Consortium under the framework of the EU P2P Programme on Export Control of Dual-Use Goods.

The Malaysian delegation was composed of officials from the Royal Malaysian Customs, the Royal Malaysian Police, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry – Strategic Trade Secretariat and represented both the licensing and enforcement administrations responsible for Strategic Trade Controls (STCs) in Malaysia.

This Study Visit took place in Rotterdam. The Dutch Customs proved a long lasting experience and efficiency in enforcement of STCs in their port facilities. The National Training Centre at Maasvlakte premises was also kindly made available to offer a unique experience to Malaysian officers.

Firstly dedicated to an exchange of best practices on enforcement of STCs with the presentation of the national approaches and experiences, the Study Visit consisted in an overview of the Commodity Identification Training (CIT), and presentations of the role of the Dutch Customs in the supervision of the Container Terminals and the Risk Assessment process by a Dutch Intelligence Officer in charge of Strategic Goods Risk Analysis.

Then, the Malaysian delegation participated in an exercise on risk assessment and containers’ inspections based on Customs Manifests. The exercise involved real inspections at Maasvlakte facilities with access to real life products stored in containers.

The activity was highly appreciated by the Malaysian delegates who valued in particular the focus on exchange of best practices, the case-studies and the hands-on exercises. Overall, the study visit was beneficial to Malaysian officers in several ways. It helped them to further develop their knowledge on STCs enforcement; it encouraged them to develop their own CIT programme and, it provided inspiration for developing an electronic database for risk assessment.
