26-30 September 2022, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina: UNODC-WCO Container Control Programme (CCP) delivered a mentoring visit to the multi-agency Air Cargo Control Unit (ACCU) at the Sarajevo International Airport in Bosnia and Herzegovina as part of CCP regular programming. Activities included site visits and physical inspections of the cargo warehouse located at the airport, as well as other authorized locations.

The mentoring visits are delivered by experienced UNODC trainers and continue to be an important tool for supporting the frontline customs and police officers with guidance, advice, and feedback on regular activities conducted by the Unit.
