Audit of the key ICT project “Freight Redesign”

Federal Customs Administration (today Federal Office for Customs and Border Security)

Key facts

The ICT landscape of the Federal Customs Administration (FCA) covers a large number of applications that emerged during a period of over ten years without consistent, uniform architecture and technology principles. They are very diverse and have a large number of dependencies and interfaces. The systems will reach the end of their life cycle at different times over the next few years. NCTS and e-dec are two key applications in particular. They are used to process import and export declarations as well as transit notifications and make up about one third of the application portfolio in terms of technology.
