COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/103

of 23 January 2019

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 as regards clarification, harmonisation and simplification as well as strengthening of certain specific aviation security measures

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 March 2008 on common rules in the field of civil aviation security and repealing Regulation (EC) No 2320/2002 (1), and in particular Article 4(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Experience gained with the implementation of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 (2) has shown the need for minor amendments to the implementing modalities of certain common basic standards.

(2)

Certain specific aviation security measures should be clarified, harmonised or simplified in order to improve legal clarity, standardize the common interpretation of the legislation and further ensure the best implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security.

(3)

Furthermore, new developments in terms of airport and airline operations, technology and security equipment addressing the changes in the threat and risk picture, as well as the evolution of international Standards and Recommended Practices of International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) require the implementing rules to be amended accordingly.

(4)

The amendments concern measures in the areas of airport security, the revision of the rules on background check in order to enhance security culture and resilience, and the introduction, definition of performance standards and use of Shoe Explosive Detection equipment (SED) and Explosive Vapour Detection equipment (EVD).

(5)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 19 of Regulation (EC) No 300/2008,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on 1 February 2019. However, points 2, 20, 25, 26, 28 to 38, 44 and 45 of the Annex to this Regulation shall apply from 31 December 2020.
