The 2019 annual report on the operation of the CCP starts by repeating its mission statement – The mission of the Container Control Programme is to build capacity in countries seeking to improve risk management, supply chain security and trade facilitation in seaports, land-borders and airports to prevent the cross-border movement of illicit goods. The CCP is to assist governments to establish and maintain effective container controls that will serve to prevent trafficking in drugs and other illicit goods, whilst facilitating legitimate trade and protect national revenues, ultimately enhancing border security.  It is to establish and maintain Port Control Units (PCU) at seaports, dry ports and land-border crossings and Air Cargo Control Units (ACCU) at airports; equip, train and mentor Customs and other law enforcement officers with a view to improved identification and inspection of high-risk freight containers, with minimum disruption to legitimate trade and business.
