September 16, 2022

From September 12-16, EXBS Subject Matter Experts conducted a Commercial Motor Vehicle Interdiction (CMVI) training for 24 Azerbaijan and Georgian Customs officials. The workshop focused on U.S. best practices in vehicle inspection to detect hidden compartments where illicit commodities can be stored. The workshop provided an opportunity for both customs agencies to develop a stronger network of cooperation at adjacent border crossing points to prevent the transfer of sensitive commodities.
