We have some truly fantastic news for you!
Oct 2, 2019 —
As you know, it has been my aim through this campaign to make international air travel easier and less stressful for those who wear an insulin pump, CGM or Freestyle Libre.
Well, I have some fantastic news for you!
Our Medical Device Awareness Card was presented at the September meeting of the Stakeholders Advisory Group on Aviation Security (SAGAS) in Brussels by Jonathan Hogben, Senior Adviser of the Aviation Security Regulation team at the UK Civil Aviation Authority.
The group is hosted by the European Commission and attended by Member States and Industry bodies, including, among others, ACI Europe, IATA, ICAO, ECAC and EASA.
Details of our campaign and reasons why the card was needed were presented along with the recommendation that the Commission fully endorse the card and Member States consider replicating and disseminating the card through the same means as the UK.
We are delighted to say that the Commission gave its endorsement of the card and made a commitment to aid with future dissemination and translation throughout Member States.
ACI Europe also stated they would take up the issue with its members (over 500 airports) and look to translate the card into all of the ICAO languages.
We will keep you to-to-date with developments as they happen and would like to thank our friends at the UK Civil Aviation Authority for their tremendous support.
