Aviation Security Working Group
The aim of the Aviation Security Working Group (PEGAS) is to:
In the last years, two European regulations were issued on Civil Aviation Security, Regulation n° 300/2008 in March 2008 and Commission Regulation n°185/2010 in March 2010.
On 9 November 2012, the EC issued a Commission implementing regulation, EU 1082/2012, amending Regulation 185/2010 for the cargo and mail being carried into the Union from third countries.
PEGAS is following the implementation of this rule and its consequences on mail. It relays the information about Independent validators among its members and explores the consequences for each member operator.
PEGAS also contributed to the drafting of a letter to the head of AVSEC unit to organize new procedures for Stakeholders group on AvSec work with DG Move (Jan 2015).
PEGAS commented on the European Commission’s call for feedback on working program in land transport security (March 2013), seeing most value in enhancing cross border police cooperation at EU-level, by promoting cross border investigation and reporting crimes options. PEGAS also calls for promoting secured parking areas along the principal road transport corridors, which would enhance security of transport immediately.
In addition to this major issue, PEGAS is also working on various topics related to aviation supply chain security and safety:
PEGAS also ensures the exchange of information amongst the members and keeps in touch with various bodies and working groups in Europe. PEGAS participates in SAGAS and Landsec expert advisory groups organised by the European Commission.
