The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has said that countries should follow the lead of the United States, the European Union, Switzerland and Canada to pursue mutual recognition agreements for air cargo security. TIACA pointed out that the recognition of the security regimes by different countries were ‘welcomed and sensible progress’ towards the shared goals of maintaining the highest levels of air cargo security without impeding international air cargo supply chains. Michael Steen, TIACA chairman said: “TIACA will continue to support additional efforts to mutually recognize security regimes and to implement global, harmonized standards.”
