Security - RCAR
The Regulated Air Cargo Agent Regime (RCAR) is implemented to secure the processes for handling, transporting and storage of cargo on all-cargo and passenger aircraft.
Known Consignor’s cargo will subject to a lower percentage of screening compared to unknown consignors whose cargo will be fully screened – screening fees apply.
Consignors are recognised as Known Consignors in 2 ways:
1] Possess industry-recognised security certification with current validity – TACSS level 1, C-TPAT Tier 2 or 3 or STP or STP-Plus;
2] Consignors who have a commercial relationship with “Speedmark” – ie consignors have shipped with “Speedmark” at least 3 times in the preceding 12 months with the third shipment transacted in the preceding 6 months without incident and at least once every 6 months thereafter.
Note: By 1 October 2020, consignors who wish to be recognised as Known Consignors must register with APD to be recognised as a Known Consignor, thus to comply with a set of security requirements in securing the air cargo which they are handling or to be exported.
