Strengthening air cargo security
Security is a critical element the of the air cargo supply chain. Regulators and industry are working together to further secure the supply chain while ensuring the flow of commerce.
IATA set up the Cargo Security Task Force (CSTF) 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 cargo has been secured along the supply chain.
Through the Cargo Security Capacity Building Program, IATA works with regulators and industry to ensure air cargo is protected from unlawful interference across the whole 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.
