Customs is a modern federal civil and economic administration, whose activities range from pure service to sovereign action. In Germany, around 39,000 customs officers are responsible for securing public finances, protecting social systems, and protecting the environment and consumers.

The requirements for customs are constantly evolving. In addition to the clearance of goods, customs regularly take on new tasks and also ensure compliance with the statutory minimum wage and manage the vehicle tax.
