For the second year in a row a 2 days’ workshop on cargo and mail screening was recently hosted in Luxembourg from 7 to 8 November 2018.
The workshop was attended by 10 participants from seven Partners States (Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova and Ukraine) of the Eastern Partnership and Central Asia Project (EaP/CA) and Serbia. An European Union-funded and ECAC/EASA-implemented EaP/CA Project (supporting the implementation of aviation agreements in the European Partnership countries and upgrading civil aviation safety and security standards in Central Asia).
ECAC, ICAO, the Luxemburgish Directorate of Civil Aviation (DAC) and LUXAIRCARGO explained in detail during the workshop the various screening methods applicable to cargo and mail shipments; identified the main challenges in the area of cargo and mail screening and provide guidelines how to mitigate them; and share best practices on how to inspect the quality of screening of cargo and mail shipments.
