In July 2023, the Digital National X-Ray Competency Test (DNXCT) replaced the NXCT as the UK image competency test for X-ray/EDS screeners.
All X-ray/EDS screeners in the UK are required to hold valid screener certification, including a valid DNXCT for all required categories.
The DNXCT has 7 test categories:
- Cabin Baggage 2D
- Cabin Baggage 3D
- Hold Baggage 2D
- Hold Baggage 3D
- Cargo 2D
- Cargo and Mail 3D
- In-Flight Supplies 2D
You can find out more information about screener certification and the DNXCT in CAP1171.
