EVAAS is a newly formed international non-profit association representing EU Aviation Security Validators based across the EU and internationally. Our headquarters are at Saint Exupéry Airport, Lyon, France.
We are the only official association for Validators and are formally recognised by the European Commission and Member States, and by industry stakeholder groups such as AEA, ACI, CLECAT, EEA, etc..
The issues affecting Validators and the work that they do globally under the EU aviation security ACC3 programme are numerous and varied. Whilst it is often the direct responsibility of Member States’ Regulators to address these, EVAAS aims to collaborate where appropriate to encourage the adoption of a consistent and harmonised approach across the EU.
EVAAS is also undertaking work to improve the quality of validations, as well as the overall security of the cargo supply chain. We will also contribute towards the development and delivery of training for validators, as well as developing and briefing and learning packages for business entities involved in secure cargo supply chains.
EVAAS will promote more visibility with regard to validations conducted globally and will cooperate in the development and operation of a global database of validated business entities involved in the air cargo secure supply chain.
