Protecting passengers and goods transport in Europe

Length :10'42"

Date of production: September 2006

Subject: Following the attacks of 11 September 2001, the European Commission implemented new common regulations to deal with terrorist threats at airports and ports. At the same time, it began community security inspections at these places.
This video shows an unannounced visit of an inspector from the European Commission at Frankfurt airport, where he tries to enter with a (fake) bomb. In Rotterdam, port authorities and transport companies have increased security at the terminals. Fences have been built, surveillance cameras have been installed, and staff and containers are being checked.
Faced with the internationalisation of terrorism, Europe is indeed playing the card of prevention.
