The 3rd Annual Collaborative Border Management Conference, 27th March 2012 in Brussels

The Conference aims to gather the border control and customs communities alongside EU and international policy makers and stakeholders, to discuss opportunities for collaboration across agencies and institutions involved in border management and how this can support smarter and more secure borders in Europe, particularly in the current economic climate when all actors are required to do more with less.

With the European Commission due to come forward with legislative proposals on Smart Borders in the first half of 2012 to develop an EU Entry-Exit System and Registered Traveller Programme, the event will also examine how the use of innovative technology can support collaboration between agencies, particularly by simplifying the sharing of information, allowing agencies to focus scarce resources on higher risk individuals and cargo and trusted travellers and traders to avail of facilitated and more streamlined border clearance facilities.


The conference will therefore set out the vision of key policymakers in the area of border management in Europe and examine how collaborative border management, in terms of both information sharing and practical cooperation between regulatory authorities, border management and customs agencies, the trading community and transport and supply chain partners, can support the achievement of these objectives.
