Being in control of customs processes via data analysis and statistical sampling
As a cross-border entrepreneur you would like to be in control of customs matters. The Customs authorities also require this of companies and regularly monitor this. One of the ways they do so is by performing a statistical sample. To be certain that your business processes are in order, you can opt to self-assess your customs administration and customs transactions filed by yourself or on your behalf.
Data analysis and statistical audit as solutions for an (internal) audit
A data analysis and statistical sampling are ideally suited as solutions for performing an (internal) audit and as part of your Customs Control Framework (CCF). Data analysis and statistical sampling can be used preventively, both for technical customs purposes and for assessing the quality of customs processes and (internal) control measures. Performing a data analysis and statistical sampling enables you to determine the accuracy of a larger population. By using statistical sampling preventively as a periodic or incidental assessment and evaluating it as part of your Customs Control Framework, you retain control of your customs position and processes.
