Special control procedure for airfreight
After the German Federal Aviation Authority (LBA) banned the use of the special control procedure in mid-2019 a "control tourism" to the Benelux region and France became established in Europe. Following the tightening of their national guidelines, the security option in the Benelux countries was initially cancelled.
After extensive testing of the special control procedure using explosives detectors or explosives detection dogs (ETD devices / EDD ) on the outer packaging of the consignment, the French authority Direction générale de l'Aviation civile (DGAC) determined that these do not comply with the requirements of the EU regulation. This explicitly affects airtight packaging (drums, IBCs, etc.). Affected goods can be liquids, solids, granulates, powders and pastes; regardless of whether they are dangerous or harmless goods. With the prohibition of the special control procedure, the authority provided a transition plan.
