  1. Air Transport: What Route to Sustainability?Aviation Security: What about Facilitation? Urs Haldimann, Head Legal and International Affairs, FOCA 3rd ICAO/McGill Pre-Assembly Conference, Montreal, 27 September 2010

  2. Overview • Meaning of Security and Facilitation • What’s the role of Facilitation? • Facilitation, a question of timing? • Consistency of the system • Conclusions

  3. Meaning of Security and Facilitation • 3 pillars of Security: • Intelligence • Security measures • Unpredictability • Key factors of Facilitation: • No unnecessary requirements (common sense) • Timely/smooth processing (minimum inconvenience) • Quality of service (minimum facilities regarding construction, operation) • Accommodation of special needs

  4. What’s the role of Facilitation? Strength of Facilitation: • Process oriented (“oil in the machine”) • Air Transport oriented (counterbalance to other Annexes to Chicago Convention) • Positive security side-effects (PNR, API) Weaknesses of Facilitation: • Low safety-relevance • No homogeneity, different entities involved (Customs, Immigration, Public Health, Consumer Protection, Civil Aviation Authorities) • No priority to CAAs, since no absolute obligation

  5. Facilitation, a question of timing? Before 9/11, security measures questioned with regard to their necessity • Facilitation as a concept was promoted by the industry and accepted by States After 9/11, security became predominant • Facilitation primarily perceived as tool for improving security (API, PNR-Information) • Implementation of security not facilitations oriented (often poorly harmonized, e.g. list of prohibited items, unilateral measures)

  6. Consistency of the system • Acceptance of security by public: essential for its success on the long run • Efficient security technology: high detection rate and efficient operation (double condition) • “Return on investment”, when facilitation measures serve security needs (e.g. API/PNR -> faster immigration procedures) • No sustainable security processes without Facilitation

  7. Conclusions • Security and Facilitation are too often running on anti-cyclic waves, instead of being seen as complementary elements • Systematic monitoring of security processes from a facilitation viewpoint would improve the whole procedure (common sense) • Effective implementation of Security is characterized by unpredictability and common sense • Facilitation is an indispensable element of proper security
