Border Control

The Agricultural Boards were always expected to do their own border controls, including the issuing of permits and the checks and control of cross border flow of agricultural produce.

The Meat Board of Namibia has been the only Board that has this as a function within their organisation. The NAB, with other stakeholders, has always outsourced this activity for the control of their produce.

Recently the Meat Board, the NAB and other stakeholders have embraced a synergistic approach toward border control and are presently reaching consensus on whether all border control functions will be outsourced or whether it will all be undertaken by the Meat Board.
