Industry and Regulators Share Advance Data Concerns at TIACA Summit

[ May 22, 2015   //   ]

Regulators from Europe, USA, and Canada jointly formed a panel for the first time to engage with industry at TIACA’s Executive Summit (ES) today.

Industry must continue to work closely with regulators to ensure impending advance data rules enhance security without impeding cargo flows, delegates at TIACA’s Executive Summit (ES) heard today. Representatives from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the European Union (EU), Transport Canada, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), World Customs Organization (WCO), and the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) took to the stage to give updates on their advance data pilot schemes and take questions from delegates. “This is the first time that the key regulators for all of the advance data programs have sat together with industry to review and discuss how and when he programs will be implemented and to hear industry’s perspective,” said Doug Brittin, Secretary General, TIACA. “We appreciate this opportunity to have a frank and open discussion as well as their commitment to working with industry.” Officials at the Summit agreed with delegates that the so-called 7 + 1 data set currently used in the pilots is sufficient for civil aviation risk assessment and can be provided early in the supply chain.
