The Australian Customs Service manages the security and integrity of Australia's borders working closely with other government and international agencies.

The Customs Service protects the Australian community through the interception of illegal drugs and firearms and prevents illegal movements across Australia's borders.

Customs visits ships berthing at Western Port, and continually monitors and assesses the port to ensure that they meet the risk and workload at the port.

Further information regarding Commonwealth legislation, the responsible Minister and portfolio and the statutory powers of the CEO of Customs can be found on their website
