Kromek receives certification to provide X-ray scanners for all European airports

Kromek received (25-Oct-2010) official European Union certification to provide colour X-ray liquid detection systems to all European airports. By Apr-2011, liquid items bought in transit will be allowed on board, providing the appropriate security measures, such as screening, are in place at the airports concerned. The results of the European Civil Aviation Conference-led trials prove the technology is ready to allow the 2011 regulatory deadline to be met by airports. By Apr-2013, the ban will be lifted completely, allowing the carriage of liquids on flights across Europe. [more]
