Airport Known Consignor
We carry out Known Consignor checks for you, fast and cost effectively. In the UK, the Department for Transport (DfT) is responsible for implementing aviation security legislation. The DfT issues directions to air carriers and regulated agents, instructing them on the circumstances in which they can accept cargo as secure. As a known consignor you are expected to comply with the written guidelines described in Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on common rules in the field of civil aviation security and you may be audited against them. Compliance with the guidelines is a requirement of known consignor status and includes the background checking of staff. We carry out these background checks on your employees in accordance with the required criteria on your behalf. Once approved, Known Consignors are permitted to ship cargo as SPX from source.
Screening Checks for Airport Known Consignor
To be approved as a Known Consignor, organisations and companies need to make an application to the DfT for the locations for which Known Consignor status is required. The staff at each location will be subject to an inspection and you must have carried out the following checks to the satisfaction of the auditors.
- Five year history checks with employment, self employment, educational and benefits references
- Revenue and customs records to help cover gaps in the career history
- Character references to cover gaps over 28 days
- Declarations or Basic Disclosure (whichever is appropriate for the role) of criminal record checks
- Proof of ID
- Proof of address
- Right to Work
Heres what our clients are saying
I just checked status of our first candidate on your system. Very impressed, exactly what I was looking for. Makes the previous company look like they are in the dark ages!
Dear Joey and David,
Thank you very much for this round of BPSS clearances. All completed well in advance of project start for us which is right after Easter holidays. Well done.
That concludes this process. I am sure we will used you again when we have new such cases in the future.
I’ve used CheckBack International for security screening on behalf of my clients for nearly a year. I can’t even begin to explain how much simpler the whole process is now, in comparison to doing this in-house. I’ve had the privilege of dealing with Joey personally on several occasions, as well as the VERY competent Nicola Beels in the UK office. My clients in the security industry are safe in the knowledge that they are fully compliant with standards, through the use of CheckBack. I’m happy to recommend Joey and his team at CheckBack.
“Many thanks for this Joey. I’m very happy with your performance and intend to send all future screening business your way”
Thanks for this, This has already proven to be so much more efficient than the F20 form! I really value all of your help as well as that of the screening team. The compliance team and myself are extremely happy to be working with Checkback International.
