HK to meet UN's export cargo screening rules before June 30, 2021

A NEW export air cargo screening system must be implemented by Hong Kong within two years to be compliant with the UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) new policy direction

18 June 2019 - 19:00

A NEW export air cargo screening system must be implemented by Hong Kong within two years to be compliant with the UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) new policy direction.

Under the new policy, announced in September 2016, consignors will either have to be approved by the Aviation Security Authority as a 'validated' Known Consignor (KC) or become an 'unknown consignor' with all cargo subject to 100 per cent security screening before loading on commercial aircraft.



The deadline for full implementation of the policy (as imposed by ICAO) is June 30, 2021.



To meet requirements, the Hong Kong Government has suggested a transitional arrangement. Under the scheme, the Hong Kong government will allow forwarders and shared warehouse operators to conduct cargo-screening operations in their premises through registering to become Regulated Air Cargo Screening Facilities (RACSF).
