New development in X-Rax Screening / ETD Sniffing
Liquids, powders or paper and other dense articles can prevent to view the contents properly during X-Ray.
According to the National Security Plan (NASP) the screener then has to follows these steps:
1. turn shipment and screen shipment a second time.
2. If this is not successful and the shipment consists of several pieces (even if it is a shrunken pallet which counts as one unit), so it has to be broken down to the smallest possible unit and all these pieces have to be x-rayed again.
3. Open the shipment and "sniff" the piece(s) outside, inside and the contents.
We strongly recommend delivering shipments, which might cause all the necessary steps above, already on a single basis in order to avoid the extra cost of CHF 75.00 per half hour in excess to the normal X-Ray fees and the time loss involved.
