Customs controlled areas (CCA)

​A Customs controlled area is a secure and controlled environment in which the activities that take place are monitored or conducted by Customs.

This could be a place where international passengers are processed or where luggage and goods are inspected. Similarly a CCA might be a place where duty-free or excisable goods are manufactured, sold or stored.

For further information - see Customs Controlled Areas.
