Strengthening air cargo security
IATA established the Cargo Security Working Group (CSWG) to ensure that the experiences and constraints of the airline industry are considered in the development of effective security regulations.
To support regulators and strengthen supply chain security, IATA and the industry are working on the following main initiatives:
The standard Advance Cargo Information ahead of the arrival of goods, aiding processing and clearance of cargo.
The Consignment Security Declaration (CSD) provides an audit trail of how, when and by whom specific cargo shipments have been secured along the supply chain.
IATA supports air carriers in complying with EU ACC3 Validation process providing all the necessary information and assessment to prepare for their validation.
- Visit our Center of Excellence to view the benefits ACC3 can bring to airlines.
- See the current list of Air Cargo Carriers operating into the EU from a Third Country Airport (ACC3), Regulated Agents (RA3) and Known Consignors (KC3) on the European Union database on supply chain security.
