Anderson, Neil :
Accountability in the Customs


In 1995, CIET carried out a survey of businesses in Bolivia and Nicaragua on perceptions of the customs services. The greatest problem was seen to be delays and bribery for the release of goods. Privatisation, increased salaries, professional training of Customs staff and more frequent rotation of supervisors are suggested.

Lozbenko, Leonid :
Developing Effective Integrity Systems and Strategies


The paper describes the fact that customs are a central aspect of international commerce and trade, and how they are susceptible to corruption. Rather than seeing customs exclusively as a problem, and therefore reducing its capacities, it should also be seen as an actor against corruption, if used effectively. Fighting corruption in customs needs the commitment of the customs institution, government and business.
