CELBET Diagnostic Tool will improve efficiency of border crossing points. New product was tested in BCP Albita, Romania.

CELBET BCP Management and Evaluation team is developing a BCP Diagnostic Tool, which could help to understand the situation at the BCP in different areas, including  infrastructure, equipment, controls, cooperation with border agencies, training and management. The first testing of the tool was performed in BCP Albita together with representatives from CELBET Operational Controls and Equipment team.  The good cooperation between Customs and the Border Police was noticed.  Needs to update BCP infrastructure and equipment were discussed. The participants of the visit agreed, that the tool is very helpful, not just for CELBET but for national administrations,  in order to get the information on the strengths and on the areas of improvement at the BCP and it was decided to develop the BCP Diagnostic tool further. Also the benefits for  closer cooperation between BCPs with similarities was acknowledged.
