Customs and international trade is constantly evolving towards a digital, risk-based and system-based approach. Economic operators are not only expected to stay informed of legislative and regulatory changes in a dynamic customs and trade environment but they also need to ensure that their internal operations incorporate the necessary internal controls, based on an assessment of their risk profile.
A profound knowledge of Risk & Compliance is, in this respect, a key requirement of any future Customs & Trade professional. The Risk & Compliance module appears to be the ideal opportunity to gather the necessary regulatory, legal, operational knowledge as this Special Module will be multi-disciplinary, interactive and will cover the following key aspects & topics.
This advanced module can be taken by participants who have already passed the basic programme or can prove that they have obtained an equivalent degree of experience.
This module consists of three days of classes on 25, 26 and 28 April 2022, from 9.15 a.m. to 12.15 p.m. and from 1.45 p.m. to 4.45p.m.
The exam will take place on 6 May 2022 from 9.30 a.m. to 12.00 p.m. on the Stadscampus, University of Antwerp.
All classes are taught in English and involve a high degree of interaction. Participants who attend at least 80% of the classes and pass the exam at the end of the advanced module receive a certificate.
All classes are offered online and are recorded as well. Participants can listen to the recordings afterwards in preparation for the exam.
This advanced module is designed to ensure participants achieve an advanced level of competence (Level 3 of the EU Customs Competency Framework).
Digital course materials are provided (e.g. PowerPoints, court bundles (legal doctrine, case law)). These digital course materials will be made available through the university’s electronic learning environment.
