New rules end confiscation of duty-free liquids bought at Singapore airport from transfer passengers

The European Commission adopted on August 20 2008 a regulation (EU) No 820/2008 allowing air passengers arriving from Croatia (Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Pula, Split, Zadar and Zagreb airports) and transferring at an EU airport to take duty-free liquids on-board their connecting flights. When changing planes in the EU, these passengers will no longer be obliged to abandon liquids bought at Croatian airports and carried in their cabin baggage.

This means that liquids, aerosols and gels purchased in duty free shops at Croatian airports that are carried by transfer passengers at EU airports need no longer to be confiscated from that date onwards, provided that

1) they are carried in a Security Tamper Evident Bag (STEB),
2) they are purchased within the preceding 36 hours and
3) the tamper evident bag displays satisfactory proof of purchase at one of these airports:

Dubrovnik (DBV) airport
Rijeka (RJK) airport
Pula (PUY) airport
Split (SPU) airport
Zadar (ZAD) airport
Zagreb (ZAG) airport

This Regulation will enter into force on August 20 2008.

European rules on aviation security

The European Parliament adopted a new regulation 300/2008 that aims to ensure a high level of aviation security throughout the EU.

Common basic security standards include, inter alia, screening of passengers and cabin baggage, access control, screening of hold baggage, aircraft security checks, security controls for cargo and mail, staff recruitment and training as well as patrols and other physical controls.

Security programmes at national airport and air carrier level shall assure that the common rules are applied and maintained.

Member States are free to apply more stringent measures. However, those measures must be "relevant, objective, non-discriminatory and proportional" to the risk that is being addressed.

For the first time, in-flight security measures such as access to the cockpit, unruly passengers and in-flight security officers ('sky marshals') are addressed at European level. The new regulation doesn't oblige Member States to deploy in-flight security officers. Each Member State retains the competence to do or not to do so.

Passengers and/or their baggage arriving on flights from third countries that have aviation security standards equivalent to the EU law need not be re-screened. Therefore, agreements between the EU and third countries, which recognise that the security standards applied in the third country are equivalent to the EU standards, should be encouraged.

The regulation enters into force on the twentieth day after publication in the Official Journal and will be applied not later than 24 months after this date.

European Union has adopted new security rules for passengers and their hand luggage. The new rules apply from Monday, 6th November 2006 at all airports in the European Union until further notice.

These liquids must be in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100 millilitres each. These containers must be packed in one transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of not more than one litre capacity. The contents of the plastic bag shall fit comfortably and the bag shall be completely closed. Example of the plastic bag can be found here .

Liquids include gels, pastes, lotions, liquid/solid mixtures and the contents of pressurised containers, e.g. toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrups, perfume, shaving foam, aerosols and other items of similar consistency.
