ACI Asia-Pacific Launches Security Guidance Document
Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific has released a Security Guidance Document to help airports strengthen security in order ensure adequate protection to passengers.
Airport security personnel are normally required to perform multiple tasks, including screening, access control, vehicle examination, patrolling, behaviour detection and more. Airports are therefore required to ensure their security workforce is competent enough to perform the tasks.
The requirements of some of these functions are, in many cases, not clearly stipulated in the respective national regulations, therefore causing differences in expectation and interpretation from country to country.
The ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Aviation Security Committee (RASC) has developed this guidance document to consolidate competency and training requirements of airport security functions.
Given the different circumstances across the region, this document may not be universally applicable, but rather it aims to provide supplementary references for airports in understanding the requirements of the various job functions, and thus being able to make better decisions on recruitment and human resources deployment.
