Rules and Regulation – EU Air Cargo Security Requirements

Air carriers that fly cargo or mail into the EU from a non-EU airport are required to comply with the EU ACC3 programme for inbound cargo and mail. ACC3 designation is required for each non-EU airport from which an air carrier flies cargo or mail to the EU. ACC3s must ensure that all cargo and mail and mail is physically screened according to EU standards or comes from an EU aviation security validated secure supply chain (via validated third country entities, RA3s or KC3s).
