X-Ray Scanner Control

Installation, maintenance, training and operation services for scanners for the Customs and freight security inspections.

Business Challenge

Customs and port authorities’ mission is to facilitate trade whilst maintaining an appropriate level of control to prevent smuggling and other illegal and terrorist activities. According to the recommendations of the SAFE set of standards from the World Customs Organization (WCO), the revised Kyoto Convention 1999 as well as the ISPS code and other national and international directives, Customs and ports authorities should focus on selective audit controls by using risk management techniques jointly with Non-Intrusive-Inspection (NII) techniques like X-ray scanners.
