The seminar will provide a forum for discussion to explore challenges to the administration of excise programs and build capacity of the participants by looking at:

-review aspects of the supporting legislation/regulations, and control processes and procedures in the region;
-trader information, application, approval and registration of operators, risk management, physical and audit control, planning a control program, conducting a
compliance visit, reporting, system audit and accountancy, and management controls;
-explore opportunities of increasing revenue through extending excise to other trade sectors, e.g., betting and gaming, specific petroleum products, and mobile
telephone airtime; and
-developing an excise compliance strategy.
