The European Union (EU) has designated the Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited (SAHCOL) as a 3rd country European Union Aviation Security Validated Regulated Agent.
The validation certificate was issued to SAHCOL after an onsite confirmation of the implementations of the security controls, which were certified to be in compliance with the objectives of EU/EEA bound air cargo and air mail.
According to the EU regulations 173/2012 and 1082/2012, all air cargo and air mail entering the European Union from Third Countries Airports, otherwise called ACC3 should be validated and approved by the appropriate authority from a European Union state to be able to transport secured cargo to the European Union.
ACC3’s are obliged under EU regulation EU1082 to ensure that cargo and mail destined for the EU is screened or comes from a secure supply chain. From 1st July 2014, the EU regulations state that ACC3’s must be in possession of security verifications of their cargo and mail operations at the relevant non-EU airports. This verification activity must be undertaken by an Independent Validator, certified by an EU regulator.
