UN watchdog begins 3-day audit at airport

Chennai: The UN aviation watchdog, International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), began its three-day security audit at the Chennai airport on Saturday as part of taking stock of the regulatory framework and the security system.

A four-member team will review every single security related issue, including the policy in place, equipment and the level of security in the perimeter of the airport.

On Saturday, the team visited the cargo area and the international terminal.

“On Sunday, it saw the operational area of the airport, the number of gates in the area, how tight the security was on the perimeter and the number of CISF personnel deployed,” an official said. The team also assessed whether the training of security personnel, the regulatory framework, passenger and baggage security were being followed according to internationally prescribed norms.
