Australian Border Force establishes The Customs Group

Creation of The Customs Group


Yesterday the Australian Border Force (ABF) announced the establishment of The Customs Group which will be headed by Deputy Comptroller-General of Customs, Dr Bradley Armstrong PSM.

The Group encompasses traveller, trade, customs related policy, and customs related compliance, with a strong focus on industry engagement.

A Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Branch has also been established in the new Group to address anti-slavery, including migrant worker exploitation, through global supply chains.

We understand that the Customs Group is staffed by a blended team – with ABF officers and Home Affairs employees. Integration will provide an immediate and significant opportunity to better align trade and customs activities.
