Ghana Customs, a division of Ghana Revenue Authority, has signed an agreement to deploy the World Customs Organisation’s (WCO) Cargo Targeting System (WCO CTS) recently.
The WCO CTS is a cargo manifest risk assessment and targeting solution developed by the WCO for Customs administrations across the globe. It allows those adopting the solution to implement international best practice cargo risk assessment and targeting including key pillars of the WCO’s SAFE Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade
Ghana Customs, represented at the signing event by Commissioner of Customs, Col. Kwadwo Damoah (Rtd.), becomes the 20th country to adopt the WCO CTS as a key component in their risk management strategy.
Dr. Kunio Mikuriya, WCO Secretary General said “I am very pleased that Ghana Customs has decided to implement the WCO CTS and I am confident it will significantly enhance their cargo risk assessment and targeting capability. The WCO is grateful for the support of the US Department of State and US Customs and Customs and Border to achieve this important milestone. Increasing numbers of WCO Members are choosing to adopt the WCO CTS and I look forward to Ghana Customs being another successful example for other to follow.”
