The LBA has allowed a special checking procedure to make the airfreight export material “Secure”. This method is called “Sniffen” and allows for checks on the outside of the packing as a tool to identify the material as “secure” in an airfreight sense. Specifically for our clients, this one primary method for the security check. The permit to use this procedure expires on June 30th. Resulting problems are known – same were addressed in a letter by the BDI (Association of the German Industry) in a letter to the German Aviation Authority (LBA) – as it appears to no avail, at this moment.
