Compliance management framework

Adobe Stock

Explanatory note: The compliance management framework has been developed for customs; however, practitioners from businesses may use this framework as well to design their compliance management system.

What is the customs compliance management framework?

A compliance management framework is a single operating framework that integrates the principal elements of customs risk and compliance management. It provides practitioners from customs administrations with a logical and systematic methodology for managing compliance in the customs context. 

What does the customs compliance management framework consist of?

The framework incorporates the key aspects of an effective risk-based compliance management strategy (see the figure1 below), including:

  • the law that is to be enforced;
  • processes and procedures that regulate the way in which the law is applied;
  • services to support the community’s ability to comply with the law;
  • methods of assessing compliance with the law;
  • processes for assessing risks of non-compliance with the law;
  • techniques to mitigate identified risks;
  • strategies to address the continuum of compliance behaviour.

1The figure is prepared by Prof David Widdowson and published in his article Managing customs risk and compliance: an integrated approach.

Four common misconceptions in the relationship between importers and customs brokers
16-06-2022

Importers often try to avoid customs clearance processes, relying entirely on the customs broker. On the one hand, the broker is a customs expert, possesses relevant experience and, ultimately, receives a commission for his/her work. It seems that the importer should not be involved in the processes managed by the customs broker. On the other hand, such self-exclusion can result in very unpleasant financial and reputational consequences. This article considers the most common misconceptions of importers in cooperation with customs brokers, which cause losses for both sides.

Who is responsible for customs compliance? or When everyone is responsible - no one is!
30-04-2022

Reader‘s question: We are a medium-sized EU manufacturing company. We import and export goods, and customs clearance is handled by customs agents. We are going to set up our own customs warehouse, apply for the AEO status and obtain authorisations for customs simplifications. We have also faced restrictions in regard to the sanctions imposed on Russia and Belarus. The question is, who in the company should be responsible for fulfilling the customs requirements and complying with them so that customs-related processes run smoothly?
