  • Risk 2: Evidence may not be available to confirm whether TRPs are issued by the appropriate designated authority.
  • Risk 3: Oversight at the regional and national level may not be sufficient to ensure that TRPs are documented per policy requirements.
  • Risk 4: Policy and guidance material in place may not be sufficient to guide officers' decision making process and documenting TRP issuance.
  • Risk 5: TRP training may not be sufficient to support officers, including new and inexperienced officers, in completing TRPs as per policy requirements.
  • Risk 6: The monitoring mechanism in place may not be sufficient to determine the TRP holders' non-compliance with their authorized stay.
