  1. Set up analyses/inspections labs at the points of departure/arrival at both ends of the journey to and from and within the ports and fix this system in place by governments agreements. Such cargoes should also be handled and be a responsubility of named officials both in dock and at sea; thus maintaining supervison continuity.

    Just musing.
