ACC3: Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the
Union from a Third Country Airport
As of 1st July 2014, virtually all air cargo and mail carriersoperating into the European Union (EU) from third countryairports must have passed an EU Aviation SecurityValidation audit to continue to fly cargo into Europe.ACC3 stands for ‘Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the Union from a Third Country Airport’ and is a designation currently required by the European Union (EU) in order for these carriers to fly air cargo into or through the EU.By 1st July 2014, carrier stations in third countries will be required to haveundergone an audit to obtain an EU Aviation Security Validation in order toacquire or maintain their ACC3 designation. This validation needs to be reissued every five years.The designation of an air carrier as ACC3 carrying cargo or mail from an airport into a third country, for which ACC3 designation is required, shall be based on an EU aviation security validation report confirming the implementation of security measures from 1 July 2014.An air carrier which is already designated as ACC3 has to fulfil this requirement until 1 July 2014. For further information klick here.The EU aviation security validation in respect of an air carrier’s relevant cargo consists of an examination of the air carrier’s security programme ensuring its relevance and completeness and a verification of the implementation of aviation security measures in respect of the relevant cargo operations by using the checklist set out in Attachment 6-C3.For being a Regulated Agent (RA 3) or Known Consignor (KC 3) a validation is also necessary.How will this impact my business?Carrier stations in third countries that fail the audit will not receive an EU Aviation Security Validation resulting in the loss of their ACC3 designation. Asa consequence they may be barred from shipping air cargo into or through the EU.
