Australia publishes security plans

Australia’s Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development has published a discussion paper on planned arrangements to meet new security rules for US-bound air cargo security.
The proposals include a scheme to allow approved businesses to examine air cargo at piece-level off-airport from 2015 together with stablishing a Known Consignor scheme from mid-2016.
From mid-2017 all US-bound air cargo will either have to originate from a known consignor or be examined at piece-level.
