The International Civil Aviation Organization should serve as the focal point for implementing global air cargo supply chain security standards, the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG) says.

In its latest position paper on ‘Air Cargo Supply Chain Security Regimes for Regulators’, the Group says it supports global standards and programs with regulatory backing  around the world in order to facilitate safe, secure and efficient air cargo operations. It calls for ICAO, in collaboration with other international organizations, to take the lead role to continue improvements in the security of the global air cargo supply chain with the commitment of its member states.
