The Port of Açu welcomed three representatives of the Federal Revenue Service in Campos, who offered a seminar on customs control in the auditorium of the enterprise’s Visitors Center. The event, held yesterday and today, was marked by learning and shared experiences about procedures used to inspect people, motor vehicles and merchandise under legal requirements. About 60 people of the Inspection and Asset Security teams of the Port Complex attended the event.
“The seminar was very relevant to update teams who work at the gates of customs areas about the importance of the activity that they perform, along with the Federal Revenue Service. It was also an opportunity to understand the agency’s work routine and establish closer relations with their representatives,” said Célia Daumas, Projects and Infrastructure manager of the Port of Açu.
For the Federal Revenue Service, which normally accesses the Port Complex to perform routine tasks, being able to meet and have a dialogue with associates during a scheduled event was valuable. “Our activity and Port of Açu’s activity must always walk hand in hand, thus the importance of sharing our information and knowledge. This type of meeting just strengthens our relationship,” said Renato Braga, adjunct-delegate of the Federal Revenue Service in Campos.
Associates of the Port Complex used the seminar to get answers to their questions and share experiences. “This exchange is very important, as we depend on the Federal Revenue Service and they depend on us. Aligning procedures is key to know what, how and when to do things, ensuring good relations between the parts,” said Renato Louzada, Asset Security supervisor of the Port of Açu.
The Port Complex has three terminals with customs that are certified by the Brazilian government and comply with the standards recommended by the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code), a security framework adopted globally to prevent illicit acts against vessels and port structures.
