FIATA calls for member voices to assess readiness of air cargo

Following the United States of America's (US) implementation of the Air Cargo Advance Screening Program (ACAS), the air cargo industry anticipates that multiple countries will strengthen air cargo security and safety risk analysis by implementing Pre-Loading Advance Cargo Information (PLACI) programs. The new European Union (EU) PLACI regime - Import Control System 2.0 Release 2 (ICS2 Release II), which applies to airfreight, came into force on March 1, 2023.


ICS2 is a comprehensive Customs management system designed to streamline and enhance security measures in international trade. FIATA has prepared a survey that aims to assess the readiness of the air cargo industry for the implementation of ICS2 Release II. The update intends improving efficiency, traceability and risk management in the transport of cargo by air.


FIATA says that its aim is to gain an overview of how prepared freight forwarders are for these changes, and how they will comply with the new regulation. It has requested the trade to answer the survey so that it can support companies effectively in the implementation of this regulation, informed a communique.
