Latest release: enhanced facilitation practices reflected in 13th edition of ECAC Doc 30 Part I – Facilitation
9 January 2024 — Led by the Doc 30, Part I (Facilitation) review sub-group, work was completed in 2023 to update the content of this ECAC Policy Statement on Facilitation to ensure its alignment with current positions.
This review results in key changes in this 13th edition of Doc 30, Part I to reflect amendments to ICAO Annex 9 and related guidance documents, and to reflect evolving facilitation practices in Member States and the industry. Modifications encompass topics such as health measures, Advanced Passenger Information and Passenger Name Record, unruly passengers, trafficking and timely communications.
The breadth of topics covered under Doc 30, Part I underscores the extent of ECAC’s programme on facilitation, driven by Member States’ growing emphasis on matters of common interest relating to immigration and the needs of persons with reduced mobility.
