Vanuatu has put in place an intelligence system to assist customs authorities in the collection and storage of law enforcement information.
The National Customs Enforcement Network (nCEN) system – developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO) – will enable customs to manage information on all aspect of their law enforcement functions. The Information Communication Interface included in nCEN will allow customs to legally exchange data with Fiji Customs through a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two administrations in 2015; and to transfer the non-nominal components of the intelligence data directly to the global CEN database, which is accessible by more than 150 customs administrations globally.
With the development, Vanuatu customs joins Fiji customs as the only two customs administrations in the Pacific region, and only 20 others in the world, to have implemented the nCEN system.
Vanuatu Customs and Inland Revenue Department said: "Vanuatu Customs is committed to continuously improving and modernizing its procedures and operational techniques. The introduction of nCEN in Vanuatu is another example of this commitment, which enables Customs to take large strides towards good governance, and the improved facilitation of people and goods across the border, resulting in better controls and ultimately sustainable development and economic growth."
