Security audit of Shanghai airports set


The Civil Aviation Administration of China held the Shanghai Airport Aviation Security Audit Meeting on May 15 to begin the 11-day security audit on Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Hongqiao International Airport. CAAC Vice Minister Wang Changshun attended the meeting with representatives from Shanghai Airports Aviation Security Commission, including Shanghai Airport Authority, East China ATMB and airlines. The CAAC Audit Group is composed of 20 personnel, divided between Pudong and Hongqiao Airports. The audit will be based on regulations and programs of the Civil Aviation Safety Security Rules of China and National Civil Aviation Security Audit Rules. Procedures to be followed are on-site observation, personnel interviews and discussions, document examination, and an on-site test. Each group is asked to audit 125 items in 10 aspects, including organization structure and administrative management, restricted area management and pass control, passenger and hand baggage security, check-in baggage security, aircraft in-flight security, aviation cargo security, aircraft catering and supply security, emergent handling of illegal interference, safety security facilities and equipments, personnel and training. China established its own aviation security audit based on the requirements of the Convention on International Civil Aviation Security and related Chinese laws and rules, and the ICAO security audit program. CAAC established and issued the National Civil Aviation Safety Security Plan to regulate China civil aviation. In 2005, CAAC audited the Shenzhen Airport and Haikou Airport. This year, the CAAC plans to conduct an aviation security audit on 27 airports.
