Oz agents progress towards 100% screening

Australia has made good progress in meeting new US security rules, says the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development in its latest air cargo security newsletter.
Airfreight agents are moving in rapidly on 100% piece-level screening targets for US-bound air cargo, after Enhanced Air Cargo Examination (EACE) started at 23 facilities across Australia.
Six regulated air cargo agents, including one cargo terminal operator have been approved to prepare cargo to piece-level standards under EACE, it says.
The Office of Transport Security recently extended its engagement to 34 businesses across Australia, including cargo terminal operators and general and perishable freight forwarders, to guide these businesses through the technology, human factors and security standards for EACE.
The aim is to support industry in progressing toward 100% piece-level screening for US-bound air exports by July 2017.
