In view of the ICAO policy direction where consignors not subject to approval by the Aviation Security Authority be phased out by 30 June 2021, CAD has developed a new scheme to enable and regulate cargo screening in off-airport locations.

Regulated Air Cargo Screening Facility (RACSF)

ICAO policy direction suggests that other than KC approved by ASA, other consignments become an unknown cargo and subject to security screening. One of the option for consignments to be accepted and loaded on an aircraft is to be approved by ASA as an entity which applies security controls to cargo sufficient to allow carriage on any commercial aircraft.

This will affect the mode most forwarders operates nowadays. In order to consolidate cargo(裝版) on site, they must first have cargo screened at a RACSF  before cargo consolidation is possible.

    國際民航組織的政策方向表明,除了ASA批准的KC之外,其他貨物成為未知貨物並需要進行安全檢查。 其一渠道是由ASA批准作為對貨物實施安全控制的實體,使貨物被接受和裝載在任何商業飛機上運輸上。

    這將影響當今大多數貨運代理商運營的模式。 為了在現場整合貨物(裝版),必須先在RACSF篩選貨物,再對貨物進行合併。
