ECAC EDS CB C3 Approval for Smiths Detection Technology23.10.2018 11:00Tiedote

Smiths Detection has gained ECAC EDS CB C3 approval for the innovative HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX checkpoint scanner. This eliminates the need to remove electronic devices and liquids from hand luggage (subject to local authority guidelines) to make the process more passenger friendly.
