Third CEP awareness training for ECAC Member State security experts
Videoconference, 30-31 January 2023 — More than 30 aviation security experts from 16 ECAC Member States attended the ECAC Common Evaluation Process (CEP) of security equipment awareness training webinar. The purpose of the webinar was to provide the attendees with a better understanding of the CEP, and its role in supporting Member States in their national certification/approval of security equipment.
The webinar comprised two theoretical sessions:
- an overview of the legal basis for establishing the CEP (i.e. administrative arrangements), its objectives, benefits and deliverables, key principles, and the main actors involved in its implementation; and
- a review of: the types of security equipment covered by the CEP, the categories of tests conducted within the CEP framework (e.g. Full Tests, Simulator Re-tests), the testing process, the test results, and the role of “CEP designees” in each Member State.
Particular attention was paid to understanding and interpreting CEP test reports, which are provided to all ECAC Member States several times a year.
