What You Need To Know About The Nigeria Customs (NCS)

It was established in 1891, NCS was mandated with the responsibility of collecting revenue, accounting for revenue collected and anti-smuggling activities. Today, trade facilitation has become a fundamental role and part of the NCS function. This function is progressively seen by the government as an important element of making economic policy, with Customs having a unique position within the hub of the international supply chain of goods and services.

Accordingly, NCS has its own challenges and one of the challenges is the foreseeing the management of seeming contrary role of ensuring improvements in speedy service delivery, while maintaining procedural and effective intervention controls, necessary to meet the demands of complex and growing international trade, characterized in recent times by economic crime, money laundering, menace of terrorism, threatening weapons of mass destruction, violation of intellectual property rights, and dumping of toxic and hazardous substances.
