Advanced technologies will now be used by Fiji Revenue and Customs Services and the Biosecurity Authority to help strengthen border security.
In a joint statement the two organizations say their fight against harmful pest, diseases and illegal materials entering into the country has driven the need for advanced technologies.
Revenue and Customs and BAF will be using non-intrusive inspection technologies at Suva Wharf from Tuesday.
The NII technologies such as X-Ray imaging type equipment can give a quick insight into cargo load of container or pallet without the need to open it.
In a coordinated intervention approach, this can help to significantly reduce the number of physical inspections, time required for inspection and also minimizing delays in clearance of unregulated articles.
The pilot phase will commence from Tuesday next week for six weeks.
