Border Control Officers in Bosnia and Herzegovina supported by Container Control Programme

15-16 December 2022, Bijača, Bosnia and Herzegovina: As part of its continuous support to the joint inter-agency units securing borders in South-Eastern Europe, the UNODC-WCO Container Control Programme (CCP) conducted a monitoring visit to the Port Control Unit (PCU) at the land-border Bijača, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Undertaken on a regular basis, monitoring visits aim to observe the implementation of the Container Control Programme, support inter-agency PCUs and provide support to their regular work and troubleshooting. In addition, they are an indispensable tool for UNODC CCP officers in staying informed on the work and needs of the customs and border police officers composing the PCUs.

The in-person monitoring visit to the PCU at the land-border Bijača, was implemented within the EU-UNODC action on promoting the rule of law and good governance through targeted border control measures at ports and airports, funded by the European Union and implemented by AIRCOP and CCP in cooperation with the UNODC Regional Programme for South Eastern Europe.
