Aviation Security Compliance

The security of our airports and skies is critical to maintaining safety. Our security compliance team is responsible for ensuring that the aviation industry follows the security requirements that are set out in UK and international law.  A number of our experienced CAA Aviation Security Auditors, managers from Cargo and Security Management Systems (SeMS) teams will be on hand to answer your questions, so do please come and see us on stand 6049. 

Air Cargo

Cargo that originates in the UK must be subject to security checks to ensure that it does not contain prohibited items such as explosives or anything capable of causing fire. The cargo can be screened using a number of different techniques by a regulated agent or by a known consignor.

Known Consignor Scheme

The Known Consignor Scheme is voluntary. There is no legal requirement for any air cargo to be despatched from the shipper as SPX (Secure) cargo; insecure cargo may still be shipped, although it will be subject to additional security measures before it can be allowed to fly.

What are the benefits of being a Known Consignor?   If you regularly despatch your manufactured goods by air you will be keen to be in control of delivery timelines and security costs.  By becoming a Known Consignor you are able to secure your cargo to SPX (secure) cargo standards at source; this will enable you or your freight handler to deliver your products direct to the airline cargo handler without the need for further security providing the delivery chain has remained secure.  This is a tremendous advantage in terms of logistics, guaranteed delivery times and does away with any expensive additional security costs which can be incurred when processing intricate or complicated consignments.

Dangerous Goods

This year we will have one of our colleagues from the CAA Dangerous Goods team - if you have any quesitons please come see us on the stand.
