  • identify opportunities for a coordinated approach with global partners such as UNODC, Interpol or the Paris Pact Initiative
  • explore intelligence potential with regards to information via customs (i.e. the Balkan Information System and others)
  • examine intelligence potential of information contained in customs-related documents (i.e. bill of lading or pre-arrival and pre-departure manifest)
  • assess cooperation with private sector regarding heroin smuggled in postal parcels
  • collect experience on the use of non-traditional modus operandi, specifically an anonymising network (darknet) and software anonymising Internet traffic (Tor), for heroin trafficking; share knowledge on the use of undercover investigation techniques
  • analyse investigation opportunities arising from the interface between the untraceable (darknet) and the traceable environment (financial transactions)
  • use the products and services offered by Europol and Interpol for this purpose
Target Audience:
