Consultation on Certification of Airport Screening Equipment
Enterprise, Industrial Policy
All industry stakeholders, national authorities, citizens and relevant organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation.
Period of consultation
From 15.03.2013 to 10.06.2013
Objective of the consultation
The objective of this consultation is to collect the views and opinions of all relevant aviation security stakeholders on the possibility of creating a harmonised certification procedure for airport screening equipment at the EU level. Moreover, it will gather the respondents' views and opinions on the main advantages of defining harmonised standards and introducing legally binding conformity assessment of airport screening equipment in terms of safety increase as well as reduction of the testing and certification costs and of the fragmentation of the EU Internal Market.
After analysing the results of this consultation, the Commission services will publish the findings on this website. The findings of this public consultation will be part of the impact assessment report that will accompany the possible Commission's legislative proposal to establish an EU harmonised certification system for airport screening equipment.
