Charge Code 'Security' (MISC question)

In ISPG V2.1, there is no 'Security' Charge Code under  Charge Category 'Airport & ATC'. But in xml Invoice Standard V2.2, sheet 'MISC Charge Category-Charge Code', there is Charge Code 'Security'.
Pls clarify. Thanks

Hi.
 
The chapter of the ISPG is in the process of being updated by the Misc WG for inclusion in the RAM. In all cases, that chapter is just an accompaniment with explanatory text to the the standard (which is the XML file). You should rely on the XML file if there are any questions as to which takes precedence.
 
If you're interested in what the 'Security' charge code is for, if you're interested, I can check if the Misc WG has defined this yet.

Thanks for your prompt reply.
When will the next version of ISPG be released? If it is coming soon, we can wait. But if it will be, say released 3 or 4 weeks later, pls check it for me. Thank you.

HI.
 
While this will be included in the ISPG, the schedules aren't tied togethere. There should be a new ISPG in the next 2 weeks, but the description of charge codes likely won't be ready by then.
 
With that being said, Security is included in the IS-XML, which is the master version. The draft description of Security which will be included in the ISPG is:
 

 Coverage

 

Charges made by airports for provision of security scanners and search facilities, as well as any other security measures taken by the airport authorities.

Thank you, James.
So, the Security Services applied to Cargo and Mail also fall on this charge code. Am I right?

Yes, all airport/government security charges would be in this charge category / code.
 
Note that there is also Ground Handling / Pax Security category/code, which is:
 

  Coverage

 

For charges related to security services provided as part of a ground services support agreement. Does not include security charges when provided by an airport or government agency as required by law (see Airport & ATC above).

If the cargo and mail security is being provided by an airport authority of government body, it should go under Category Airport (Airport & ATC is about to be split into two separate Categories, Airport, and ATC). If it is provided by an airline or handling agent as part of a handling contract it goes in Ground Handling, Code Cargo
