PR(09)13: Iceland fails to incorporate rules relating to aviation security

18.2.2009

The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver reasoned opinions to Iceland for failure to incorporate two Regulations relating to aviation security. The European regulatory framework for civil aviation security aims at establishing and implementing a system of harmonised Community measures in order to prevent acts of unlawful interference against civil aviation.

The first Regulation[1] reviews technical requirements on restricted liquids carried by a passenger arriving on flights from third countries and transferring at Community airports. The second Regulation[2]lays down performance requirements of Threat Image Projection, which is used to enhance the performance of screeners, examining both cabin bags and hold bags.

Iceland should have incorporated these Regulations by 5 July 2008.

The purpose of the Authority's reasoned opinions is to give the State in question a last chance to take corrective measures before the Authority decides whether to bring these matters before the EFTA Court. Iceland has been given two months to take the measures necessary to comply with the reasoned opinions.
