Hosted by the Government of Malaysia

After viable explosive devices were discovered in air cargo shipments in October 2010, the global regulatory framework was subject to close scrutiny and substantially strengthened. International Organizations with responsibilities for air cargo came together and explored ways of cooperative working designed to reinforce and harmonize the whole regime while reducing duplication of effort.

Almost six years later, what is the position? Are the new rules understood and are the tools available for ensuring effective implementation? What new threats are emerging?

These issues and others will be debated at the Third ICAO-WCO Joint Conference on Enhancing Air Security and Facilitation, to be held from 26-28 July 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. With contributions from the President of ICAO and the Secretaries General of both Organizations, panellists and speakers will include representatives of international, regional and national administrations and all sectors of the air cargo industry, including manufacturers of screening equipment. The venue for the event is the 442-room Sama-Sama hotel, Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
