The workshop aimed to enhance the capacity of the State Customs Service (SCS) of the Kyrgyz Republic to plan and conduct Time Release Study (TRS) at border crossing points.
Results of the TRS will help the SCS identify specific causes of bottlenecks and take the necessary actions to address them.
Representatives from the World Customs Organization discussed in detail the principles, guidelines, phases, and tasks involved in conducting TRS.
TRS provides a snapshot of the effectiveness of customs administrative procedures and measures the actual time it takes to release goods after arrival.
Participants also prepared an action plan on how to conduct TRS regularly and aid the SCS in documenting its achievements.
