Center of Excellence for Independent Validators

Supporting the air cargo business

IATA has been encouraged by its member airlines and European regulators to support air carriers in complying with ACC3 EU Security Validation process. To respond to this demand, IATA Training and Development Institute created a Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) to train, guide and support industry stakeholders.


Benefits for the industry 

CEIV offers a comprehensive solution in an effort to assist both the aviation industry and its regulators:

1. Pre-validation assessment guidelines and assistance (pdf)

2. Standard validation methodology and self-assessment tools to help airlines and other entities test their state of readiness

3. Scope of countries and stations that need validation

4. Training courses to prepare validators and airlines

Accredited Independent Validators

Since its creation, 12 Member States, representing more than 86% of all ACC3 registrations, have accredited the CEIV Training for Independent Validators. More than 120 individuals have been trained by IATA and qualified as Independent Validators by the CEIV.

This document is maintained by IATA using personal data reported by the trained validators. In case the user of this document finds information in the  document that is not aligned with its own experience, he/she is invited to report the matter.
