Described from CAA Part 109
October 9 2008
Part 109 prescribes rules for the certification and operation of regulated air cargo agents.
This Part prescribes the security controls that are to be applied to cargo and mail carried on international passenger aircraft in order to:
- give the appropriate degree of protection to passengers and crew of international passenger aircraft, and
- preserve New Zealandís reputation as a safe point of origin for cargo with our international aviation partners, and
- meet international treaty obligations under the Convention on International Civil Aviation Annex 17 (Security) that will assist in ensuring the security of civil aviation from and within New Zealand.
Part 109 aims to prevent, as far as possible, weapons, explosives or other articles or substances that could be used for committing an act of unlawful interference being loaded as cargo or mail onto international passenger aircraft.
