- Not more than 12% of every 100 import operations, determined by random selection for product types with a risk score of 1;

- not more than 17 percent of each 100 import operations determined by random selection for products with risk assessment 2;

- a maximum of 34 percent of each 100 import operations for products with risk assessment 3 determined by random selection.
