The Consignment Security Declaration (CSD) details how regulated cargo has been transported, handled, and secured along the entire supply chain. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) worked with the transportation industry and regulators to develop this document as a universal standard for exchanging and archiving security information. The document can be audited by regulators at any point in the transportation process. The CSD contains information such as the origin and destination of the cargo, and the screening method used to ensure the safety of the contents.
IATA, the trade association for world airlines, represents 82% of total air traffic. They are a world leader on aviation policy and work closely with the UN International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to help set international shipping standards. The CSD entered into force in November 2015, and was designed to help support an ICAO requirement for documentation by aircraft carriers. The CSD is available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.
