NOTES ON AMENDMENT

 

 

Amendment 1

 

Clause 2: Commencement

 

Commencing Schedule 1 Part 2 on Royal Assent will extend the operation of Transport Security Programs for Regulated Air Cargo Agents. This will minimise the administrative burden on industry during the transition to the new air cargo security framework and enable the air cargo industry to determine the most appropriate regulatory scheme for their business and streamline transition requirements where necessary.

 

Delaying the commencement of the other Parts of Schedule 1 will provide more time for consultation with industry about consequential Regulations implementing changes to the air cargo security framework contained in the Bill. This will also prevent a period where the Act and regulations may not align and provide certainty to the air cargo and aviation industries about security arrangements over the busy Christmas period.
