Features and BenefitsCustoms Related
Through our parent company, World BASC Organization, we enjoy the support of 17 customs administrations globally. We have signed MOU with multiple Customs authorities and work continuously with local chapters to improve communications and trust.
The objective of our Customs Related Benefits package is to put into action our commitment to work with global customs authorities as representatives of the private sector. This group of benefits include key points where customs intersects with business.
The Risk Assessment is a perhaps the most important area for Customs / Private Sector cooperation. The ability of Customs to access global databases and watch lists is broad and very powerful. But it is not enough. There are simply too many service providers in a given supply chain that Customs does not know – and has no means to assess the risk they add to the supply chain. The Global BASC Risk Assessment Sandbox is the solution. It helps fill in the gaps for Customs, identifies the security profiles of the entire supply chain and provides a powerful supplemental tool for Customs to assess the risk in a given supply chain.
The BASC Trust Index is a unique tool that provides customs authorities and other members of the secure supply chain with a measure of each company’s ability to mitigate risk in the supply chain. The BASC Index is becoming a recognized standard in the global supply chain and is only available through Global BASC.
Why do we include our Member Directory in the Customs benefits group? Because this is not your average directory. In additional to being a powerful marketing tool for the promotion of our members, the Global BASC member directory is also a global reference of security profiles for thousands of companies worldwide. The directory profile is a great tool for promoting your secure services to the global supply chain. They can also be emailed to your local customs representatives to to provide them with an enhanced risk assessment tool for evaluating your supply chain partners.
