For Reinforcing the Safety System – a European Commission Donation to the Directorate
The European Commission provided a donation worth €300,000 to the Civil Aviation Directorate of the Republic of Serbia, with the aim of reinforcing the civil aviation security.
This donation includes specialized equipment, the most sophisticated of its kind, used foremost for the training and certification needs of the security staff.
The equipment includes, among others:
- X-ray units for carry-on baggage checks,
- Metal-detectors for passenger checks,
- Standard test bags,
- Anti-diversion operator certification software system
The donation programme is a part of the ECAA (Multilateral Agreement between the Republic of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Bulgaria, the Republic of Croatia, the European Community, the Republic of Iceland, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, the Kingdom of Norway, Romania, the Republic of Serbia and the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (in compliance with UN Safety Council Resolution 1244 of June 10, 1999) on the establishment of a Common European Aviation Area).
This donation should enable the Serbian aviation authorities to proceed with a more effective application of the Agreement, which will lead to reinforcement of the security system in this country and the European air space as a whole.
The donation programme will have been implemented for the next two years.
