AVIATION SECURITY REGULATORY CHARGING REGIME - ADVANCE NOTICE TO REGULATED ENTITIES
In 2016, the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport undertook a public consultation concerning the legislation to establish an aviation security regulatory charging regime, in line with provision under Article 5 of European Regulation 300/2008.
A draft Statutory Instrument (SI) ‘European Communities (Civil Aviation Security) (Amendment) Regulations 2019’ has been prepared by the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel, under the instruction of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport in consultation with the Irish Aviation Authority.
This notice has been prepared by the Authority setting out the level of fee to be charged across the aviation security regulated entities to which it applies.
The methodology applied by the IAA to determine the fee level is on a cost recovery basis and has due consideration to the existing IAA fees regime for a range of other aviation safety oversight functions under its statutory remit. The following is an extract from the draft S.I. outlining the relevant fees - EXTRACT OF DRAFT SI_Notification to regulated entities regarding AVSEC charges.
Please note that regulated agents have been identified as either a “Type A screener” or a “Type B screener” to differentiate those regulated agents that screen air cargo and mail consignments from those that do not.
The period of this notice will be two weeks until 15th of November 2019 after which the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will arrange for the publication of the legislation in advance of its coming into effect on 1st of January 2020.
