Screening of Persons Other Than Passengers

Dec 18, 2019


ICAO defines screening as ”the application of technical or other means which are intended to identify and/or detect weapons, explosives or other dangerous devices, articles or substances which may be used to commit an act of unlawful interference.” This language, however, precludes the use of risk-based security systems in place of non-passenger screening processes, such as those used in the Known Crew Member (KCM) program in the United States.
