Random X-ray Screening of Known Cargo (SPX or SCO Cargo)

Section 11 of the Regulated Agent Security Programme stipulates that each Regulated Agent shall arrange to conduct random x-ray screening, preferably on a monthly basis, of a minimum of 1% (in weight) of known cargo consignments, which have been recorded on valid Master Air Waybills with flight numbers assigned for carriage onboard passenger aircraft and all-cargo aircraft. The random x-ray screening records shall be maintained for at least 3 years for inspection.

A summary report of x-ray screening shall be made available upon request by the Civil Aviation Department (CAD). CAD would normally inform regulated agents (RA) early each year, in writing or by e-mail, to submit the summary report for x-ray screening for the previous year. The proforma for such summary report can be downloaded at the following link (in Microsoft Excel format):
