Throughout 2014 ICAO focused on improving implementation of the cargo security-related measures introduced by Amendment 13 to Annex 17, by organizing or participating in activities intended to raise awareness, as well as through training. The activities include the joint ICAO-WCO Conference on Enhancing Air Cargo Security and Facilitation held in Bahrain in April, regional trade development initiatives such as the Lomé Declaration on Air Cargo in Africa in August and ICAO’s Air Cargo Development Forum in China in September, along with air cargo and mail conferences arranged by industry. Cargo and mail training was delivered at a number of regional centres, and a new sub-working group has been convened to assist with the coordination of capacity building activities.
The issue of Advance Cargo information (ACI) is being actively reviewed by the Joint ICAO-WCO Working Group dedicated to the subject. A report with recommendations is expected to be submitted for consideration by the next Aviation Security Panel in April 2015.
