now Member, Authority for Advance Rulings) to assist the field level customs officials in determining the appropriate levels of intervention of each trade transaction, based on the type of goods to be inspected or examined, making the best use of available resources, whether physical, laboratory, scanning, post-clearance audit and so on.
