BOMCA experts together with representatives of the Border Troops of the State Security Service of the Republic of Uzbekistan will review the basic principles of risk analysis in relation to road checkpoints. Participants will be acquainted with the principles of risk analysis developed by the FRONTEX Agency and implemented in the EU countries - methods for preparing the analysis, investigating signs of border violation, as well as the tasks and functions of the employees involved.
Based on the presented European experience, a comparative analysis of risk analysis systems in the Border Troops of the State Security Service of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the European Union will be carried out, as well as standard guidelines for risk analysis at the local level (for road checkpoints) will be developed.
The first BOMCA operations in Central Asia began in 2003 and, since then, BOMCA has strengthened the partnership between Central Asian Governments in the field of border management.
