In Safe Hands: Some quick safety audit definitions

ACC3 – stands for “Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the Union from a Third Country Airport.” This designation is required in order for these carriers to fly cargo into or through the European Union. ACC3 ensures that companies are complying with terror-related security procedures. There’s a lot of overlap between cargo theft and terrorism, and Gadot notes that employees that can be induced to steal could also be coerced into planting a bomb.

RA3 – stands for “third-country regulated agents,” which are freight forwarders or any other entity that handles cargo. These companies must ensure European Union standard security controls, requiring on-site verification of the premises where air cargo or mail to the European Union are being handled – which is what Gadot is setting about to do.
