Covid-19: Contingency plans for aviation security measures Go back
The European Commission has prepared guidelines to help protecting screeners, passengers, and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The contingency plan contains measures regarding validation, recertification, and reapproval which take into consideration the current global situation. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting challenges in carrying out training or certification sessions, the validity of certificates, approvals, and validations is temporarily extended for 6 months from their legal expiry.
This applies to:
- Re-approval or recertification of persons performing tasks as listed in points 126.96.36.199. to 188.8.131.52. of Commission Implementing Regulations (EU) No 2015/1998,
- Re-certification of instructors,
- Re-approval of European Union Regulated Agents, Known Consignors, Regulated and Known Suppliers, if the on-site visit cannot take place,
- Re-approval of EU aviation security validated operators and entities in third countries, if the on-site visit cannot take place (here, contingency conditions and precautions will apply for the temporary extension of ACC3, RA3, and KC3 status),
- TIP library renewals, and
- Recertification of EDD.
