Understand the changes to hold baggage screening

Understanding ECAC Standard 3

In response to increasing security threats, the European Commission passed a legislative framework requiring all hold baggage screening in Europe be equipped with European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Standard 3 approved explosives detection systems (EDS). These changes must be implemented by 2018 in the UK, 2020 in the rest of Europe, and by 2022 in special circumstances.

We’ve already worked with airports of all sizes across Europe and are ready to partner with you to help you transition seamlessly to the new regulations.
