What you need to know: Important Changes to Transport Canada Air Cargo Security Program

Starting October 17, 2016, changes to Transport Canada requirements will allow for air cargo to be screened and made secure as early as the time it is packed, and up until the time it is tendered to an air carrier. If a business wants to be involved in screening, storing, transporting, tendering and / or accepting secure air cargo, it can apply to participate in Transport Canada’s Air Cargo Security Program. The Air Cargo Security Program focuses on a Secure Supply Chain approach in which air cargo is kept secure and free from tampering while being handled at different stages of its journey.

Transport Canada has begun accepting applications under new Air Cargo Security Program participant categories. Applications should be received by March 31, 2016 in order to be processed by the October 17, 2016 coming-into-force date for new air cargo security regulations.

Applications will continue to be received and processed after that date. However, with the expected surge in applications over the coming weeks, Transport Canada cannot guarantee applications received after March 31st will be processed before the October coming-into-force date.
