Arab postal officials updated on security

Postal officials from 16 Arab countries were updated on postal security at a workshop conducted by Universal Postal Union.

Postal officials from 16 Arab countries were updated on issues concerning postal security at a four-day workshop conducted recently by experts from Universal Postal Union (UPU) at Emirates Post’s Training & Development Centre, Dubai.

The participants were given a comprehensive understanding of postal security from a global perspective by Randy Miskanic, UPU security specialist, and Jeanne Graupmann, postal inspector, International Affairs Group, US Postal Inspection Service.

The workshop covered ways of detecting dangerous or banned items as well attempts towards money laundering through modern technology. The participants were introduced to the E-MARIA system, which detects suspicious items in mail and parcels and facilitates information to be relayed to concerned postal authorities. The workshop focused on how Arab postal organisations could join hands to heighten postal inspection.

This was the 4th specialist UPU workshop to be organised at the Training and Development Centre, an accredited TRAINPOST training centre equipped with facilities for simultaneous translation.

The participants came from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, Palestine, Lebanon, Yemen, Sudan, Iraq, Djibouti, Morocco, Syria and Oman.
