• The security of our airports and skies is critical to maintaining safety. Our security compliance team is responsible for ensuring that the aviation industry follows the security requirements that are set out in UK and international law.

    Air Cargo

    Cargo that originates in the UK must be subject to security checks to ensure that it does not contain prohibited items such as explosives or anything capable of causing fire.  The cargo can be screened using a number of different techniques by a regulated agent or by a known consignor.
