UK Air Cargo Security Requirements

Since 1 January 2021, any air carrier flying cargo or mail from certain non-EU countries into the UK must hold a UK ACC3 designation for each relevant Last Point of Departure (LPD) airport.
As with the EU scheme, all ACC3s must ensure that all cargo and mail is physically screened according to UK standards or comes from a UK aviation security validated secure supply chain (via validated third country RA3s and KC3s).

A link to the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s website page setting out these requirements in more detail can be found here.

The updated UK Supply Chain Security Database, which includes a full list of UK-accredited validators, is accessible via this link here.
