X-Ray Scanner Control

New technology for customs and security operations

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Customs authorities are making continual efforts to prevent smuggling and other illegal activities. According to the recommendations of the World Customs Organization Kyoto Convention 1999, Customs authorities should reduce their exclusive reliance on checking movements of goods, and focus more on selective audit controls by using risk management techniques.

SOLUTION

What is X-Ray Scanning? X-Ray Scanning at destination is the most efficient way available to control imported goods in containers without unloading them. The speed of scanning, the penetrative power of the beam, its excellent spatial resolution and the flexibility of this system are all key factors of this service. Bureau Veritas offers X-Ray Scanning in conjunction with risk analysis through its exclusive SmartLane (Risk Management Solution) software to help secure international trade.
