On 7 September 2016, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation establishing a certification system for aviation security screening equipment. The proposal seeks ‘to contribute to the proper functioning of the EU internal market and to increase the global competitiveness of the EU industry by establishing an EU certification system for aviation security equipment’. This system would be based on EU type-approval and issuance of a certificate of conformity by manufacturers, which would be valid in all Member States, according to the principle of mutual recognition.

The proposal falls under different policy frameworks: the 2012 Commission communication entitled ‘Security Industrial Policy Action Plan for an innovative and competitive Security Industry’, the European agenda on security adopted by the Commission in April 2015, and the communication ‘Delivering the European Agenda on Security to fight against terrorism and pave the way towards an effective and genuine Security Union’, adopted in April 2016.
