EMIRATES SkyCargo is collaborating with compliance solutions provider Accuity to automate and streamline its regulatory compliance screening operations, raise efficiency and accelerate service delivery for its customers.
The airline has implemented Accuity's Firco Trade Compliance, an Accuity solution that screens shipment documentation (such as airway bills) against sanctions, dual-use goods and regulatory watch lists, within a single interface, London's Air Cargo News reported.
The new solution will enable Emirates SkyCargo to automate six million compliance checks each month.
Emirates senior vice president Henrik Ambak said: 'Our top priority is to continue to adhere to regulatory requirements and manage our screening obligations accurately. Working with Accuity has enabled us to screen our very high volumes of shipments more efficiently ensuring that we comply with all international regulations.'
Cargo operators are responsible for conducting due diligence on the parties and items involved in every shipment they facilitate. This includes verifying the legitimacy of the sender and recipient, checking for dual-use or controlled goods, and ensuring the shipment is not going to or coming from a prohibited location.
Emirates said that using the system will allow it to screen shipment documentation against a variety of regulatory lists, such as the OFAC sanctions list and the EU dual and controlled goods list.
Firco Trade Compliance also allows the analysis of bespoke datasets so, for example, Emirates will be able to screen goods against an endangered wildlife list, all within the same system.
