EU ACC3 David Alexander General Manager: Compliance Services Professional Cargo Security Presentation to the SAAFF Congress October 2013 Air Cargo Security Developments
The Aim? Economic disruption Spend billions to inspect each and every package Supply chain disruption
Air cargo security exposed This or That? How do we know?
Lessons All ports of call in Operation Hemorrhage applied ICAO Annex 17 measures Made Known or Secure cargo so it was accepted in supply chain Standard screening did not detect the devices
Air cargo security challenges Two weaknesses identified Transfer and Transit cargo Screening and screening methods
Classification of Risk Green countries no validation required, free movement of cargo White countries require independent validation, then free movement of cargo Red countries require independent validation and enhanced security measures
Result Revised EU air cargo security Regulations in 2010 (EU185/2010) ACC3 EU Aviation Security Program Declaration of Commitments by air carriers by February 2012 Validation by 1 st July 2014
In South Africa? Changes to Part 108 in South Africa Enhanced security measures for High Risk Cargo Changes for Transfer and Transit cargo
South Africa? World class air cargo security regime Direct flights to recognized by the TSA More robust and comprehensive than some EU systems
Why must South Africa implement validations? Not on the Green list…….
What is validation? Validation that the RA3 has a security program that is comprehensive and robust Security measures meet EU standards Focus on people, procedures and screening Allows RA3 to tender secure cargo for 5 years
Validation is not…… A validation of South African Part 108 procedures Does not replace Part 108
ACC3 Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the Union from a Third Country Airport
ACC3 Based on air carriers, not foreign states Exceptions for air carrier flying from a green country Cargo must be screened or come from a secure supply chain
Specifics Screening to be in-line with EU Regulations HRCM (high risk cargo and mail) to be double screened Regulated Agents (RA3) and Known Consignors (KC3) to be independently validated
What about Regulated Agents and Known Consignors? RA and KC must also be validated (direct or indirect) ACC3 must cover them in their IV activity…or RA and KC can be validated in their own right Carriers are responsible for ensuring their cargo meets the new EU Regulations prior to loading Secure Supply Chain – trust but verify (IV)
HRCM? Cargo from a Red or restricted country Significant damage Suspected tampering Leaks and smells and weight Documentation
The future? From 1st July 2014, EU bans air cargo from 3rd countries unless stations and supply chain are Independently Validated (ACC3) Validation can only by done by Independent Validators (IVs) accredited by an EU Member State Re-validated every 5 years
Path to validation Become a Part 108 Regulated Agent or Know Consignor If you are a Part 108 RA you have 80% of measures already in place Proper pre validation
Consequences and dangers of non validation Liability in the case of an incident (company and Directors personally) Delays at air carrier Air carriers screening cost (open season?) Moral responsibility
A South African first! Kintetsu World Express first southern African logistics company to receive top EU security accreditation - RA3 designation
FAQ Cost? Time to become validated as an RA3 or KC3. What if I do not wish to become an RA3 or KC3? Will this affect my business?
