Known Consignor

In order to protect civil aviation from attacks, national and European security frameworks and relating legislation have been developed. In Germany, the department ‘Aviation Security‘ of the German aviation authorities (Luftfahrtbundesamt) is responsible for the monitoring of the safe supply chain, including Regulated Agents and Known Consignors.

The Known Consignor is the entity who first enters identifiable cargo into the supply chain, i.e. who trade for own account.

Only cargo of a Known Consignor may be transported by a Regulated Agent as secure cargo on a passenger flight, as otherwise the save supply chain cannot be guaranteed.
