The customs department is the government agency responsible for regulating the flow of goods in and out of a country.
The primary purpose of the customs department is to collect duties and taxes on imported goods. Additionally, the customs department works to prevent the smuggling of contraband, such as drugs and weapons.
To do this, customs officials inspect shipments and conduct interviews with travellers. They also use state-of-the-art technology to screen for illegal items.
In the UK, the customs department is HMRC.
