Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Aviation Security (Air Cargo Agents) Regulations 1993. The principal changes are as follows—

(1) Extending from every three years to every five years the period for applying to remain on the list of security approved air cargo agents (regulation 2(a)), and

(2) Enabling the Secretary of State to remove a security approved air cargo agent from the list of security approved air cargo agents without first giving notice to the air cargo agent of a proposal to do so and considering representations before making that decision. In such a case the Secretary of State is required to give notice with reasons and the air cargo agent is afforded a right of appeal to the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State’s decision on appeal must be notified to the agent and, in a case where the decision is to maintain the removal of the agent from the list, reasons for that decision must be given (regulation 2(b) and (c)).
