Risk Assessment for Customs in Western Balkans

The RACWeB project aims to improve the Western Balkans and EU neighbouring countries customs efficiency and transparency in risk assessment by enhancing the identification of risk profiles through the utilisation of data mining techniques and by developing an advanced, web-based risk assessment service in customs declarations.

The RACWeB service will be accessible by Western Balkans and EU neighbouring customs administrations or any other authorised user whenever the level of risk involved in a customs declaration made by a declarant needs to be further assessed. Such a service clearly does not intend to replace, but to complement current and future national customs systems and to assist human controllers in Western Balkans and EU neighbouring counties. Therefore, the service will be developed according to the Service-Oriented Architecture approach that allows for easy access and seamless integration with legacy systems.

The RACWeB project involves 4 EU technology/scientific partners, 4 central customs administrations along with 3 IT consulting companies / research organizations from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia respectively. The duration of the project is 30 months.
