WCO Council’s updates on SAFE welcomed by TIACA

Published on : Wednesday, July 8, 2015

TIACATIACA has welcomed the WCO Council’s adoption of important updates to its SAFE Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade.

As part of the changes, the WCO recently formally adopted the so–called ‘7 + 1’ data set as the requirement for risk data analysis, helping to standardize basic Pre-Loading Advance Cargo Information (PLACI) processes.

“This is a major step forward for Advance Data,” said Doug Brittin, TIACA Secretary General.

“The WCO should be praised for collaborating so closely with industry to work toward a secure supply chain while ensuring the smooth flow of commerce.”

PLACI initiatives undertaken by the US, European Union (EU), and Canada since the 2010 ‘Yemen incident’, where bombs were intercepted hidden in desktop printers shipped on express carriers, have proved that using Advance Data for civil aviation risk assessment provides an additional layer of security.

TIACA is working with regulators globally to ensure that new PLACI regimes are standardized.

The ‘7 + 1’ data elements include the number of pieces, total weight, general cargo description, shipper name and address, and consignee name and address (the seven), plus the house airwaybill number (the one).

“Unless the new PLACI regimes are standardized overall, there is a very real risk that cargo will be left sitting on the tarmac if it is transiting more than one regime,” said Brittin.

“TIACA is working to make sure that every segment of the air freight supply chain is heard as regulators begin to implement new rules.”

“We collaborate closely with WCO and others involved in the new rulemaking to ensure that we have a safe supply chain without impeding the flow of cargo.

“The WCO’s recent security framework updates are a solid example of this working in practice.”

TIACA recently brought together regulators from across the globe to update industry on PLACI initiatives at the Executive Summit in Miami, USA.
