The main objectives of the study were; (i) to identify the general level of competency among Royal Malaysian Customs Officers; (ii) to examine the relationship between five dimensions of competency (aspects of interpersonal skills, planning and organizing skills, problem solving skills, decision making skills and communication skills) and overall job performance and; (iii) to assess the influence of demographic factors on job performance. The required data were gathered from 90 Customs officers attached at Royal Malaysian Customs Department Kelana Jaya, Wilayah Persekutuan.
