Regulated Air Cargo Agent


The RACA (Regulated Air Cargo Agent) ID Tags were developed in collaboration with CTO’s, AVSEC and BARNZ. The ID Tag is envisaged to become the industry standard for Identifying whether employees are Authorised Persons under Rule 109 and whether employees have a favourable security check with AVSEC.

“CTOs and airlines are strongly supportive of the CBAFF ID card because we know that a system is in place to only issue it when the person concerned has met the security clearance and the training requirements. I am writing to advise you of the concerns that exist and the measures that are underway to address this matter. Would you please encourage your members and through them the drivers they employ (company or contract) to either have proof of security clearance and training when delivering cargo or better still possess a CBAFF ID card which CTOs and airlines accept will be adequate proof of requirements being met.”
