What role will the border and customs play post-Brexit? And is it time to re-assess the role of the border and the need of paper-based declarations (and other documents) from a customs and compliance perspective? Take part of Mr Hesketh view of how new technology and the role of data management create a basis for new ways to manage customs, ways that can facilitate trade through smoother operations, more efficient flows of goods, and improved risk mitigation.

Mr David Hesketh is an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Customs and Excise Studies, Charles Sturt University, a researcher for the European Union and former long-term senior advisor UK Government, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
