Given the variety of stakeholders in the implementation process, various aspects of the overall processes to promote a common understanding and standardized approach to ABC implementation are outlined. This Implementation Guide, established in close cooperation between IATA, FRONTEX and ACI, explains the ABC functionalities and provides guidelines, checklists and case studies. Download ⇓

The Security Access & Egress Implementation Guide 

Increased and constantly changing security requirements continue to add costs to the industry. Unfortunately delays associated with passenger processing are significant as the number of passengers grow and security threats and border protection measures proliferate around the world. There is a significant benefit in documenting various aspects of the overall processes at the security checkpoint. The multiple stakeholders around the security process including airport operators, airlines, and multiple government agencies make security process improvement a complex challenge to tackle. Each of these stakeholders have operational goals especially with regards to improving efficiency (maximizing capacity utilization whilst minimizing operational costs), security and passenger experience. The content of this Implementation Guide, established in close cooperation between IATA and ACI, is intended to be used as guidance material and to be considered when applicable, subject to local requirements.
