New Call For Air Cargo Security Standards

It calls for ICAO, in collaboration with other international organizations, to take the lead role to continue improvements in the security of the global air cargo supply chain with the commitment of its member states.
By Patrick Burnson, Executive Editor
February 05, 2013

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) should serve as the focal point for implementing global air cargo supply chain security standards, the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG) says.

In its latest position paper on “Air Cargo Supply Chain Security Regimes for Regulators,” the Group says it supports global standards and programs with regulatory backing around the world in order to facilitate safe, secure and efficient air cargo operations. It calls for ICAO, in collaboration with other international organizations, to take the lead role to continue improvements in the security of the global air cargo supply chain with the commitment of its member states.

GACAG welcomes ICAO’s endorsement of air cargo supply chain security as a standard for its member states, which began in July 2011 (Amendment 12 of Annex 17), and recognizes the efforts it is making to facilitate building the capacity of those states that plan to enhance or start air cargo supply chain security regulatory frameworks. In particular, GACAG highlights the work being pursued by the United Kingdom, European Community, Canada, Australia, and the United States, along with other civil aviation authorities, to consider industry standards and guidelines as a way forward in building air cargo supply chain security capacity.

“We strongly urge states to mutually recognize secure air cargo supply chain programs that comply with the ICAO standards and incorporate the principles supported in our position paper, said Michael Steen, Chairman of GACAG.

“GACAG welcomes mutual recognition as a way for regulators to facilitate the movement of cargo along the air cargo secure supply chain without requiring redundant security measures, specifically at transit/transfer points.”

The Group said it supports international initiatives such as ISO 2800 and Secure Freight to offer assistance to regulators and industry in securing the air cargo supply chain. GACAG recommends that interested states utilize a recognized international standard template for air cargo security for the implementation of a Regulated Agent and a Known Consignor regime, among many other templates.

Brandon Fried, executive director for the Airforwarders Association (AfA) agreed:

“We believe that the key to successful air cargo security lies in the harmonization of international supply chain regulations and standards,” he said in an interview.  “Leveraging the collaborative mission of ICAO allows all nations to participate in developing a globally acceptable set of standards, guidance and templates that reduce confusion while supporting industry best practices.”

One of the greatest supply chain challenges that companies face is to reliably and profitable meet global demand. Outsourced manufacturing, lengthy global supply chains, a large number of suppliers, and volatile demand all create an environment where supply chain decision-makers worry that they can't deliver on promises they've made. But companies with a strong assurance of supply program have confidence in their ability to fulfill demand. They're able to make dynamic, data-driven changes in the execution stage to counter disruption and volatility. These decisions are made possible by cloud-based supply chain technology.
