There are quite a few misunderstandings, even after the introduction of the NOBB, about the documents required to gain access to Security training programs, such as Clerk, Controller, Supervisor and Security Manager, for example.
The training for and role of the Security Advisor will be eliminated as of June 1, 2023. The BAL, when the validity period of his certificate expires, will have to participate in the security manager air cargo training. The security manager must be in-house and can no longer be outsourced as before (the "external BAL"). However, the security manager can continue to use the external security consultant.
Firstly, the police permit: the police permit (or the declaration of reliability issued when applying for the police permit) is NOT sufficient to be admitted to the courses in question. The screening for the police permit does not focus on the specifically mentioned points in the Certificate of Good Conduct, which is requested to gain access to the training courses and the tasks arising from them.
Then the ACN - VOG: Drivers transporting air cargo who apply for an ACN pass will need a Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG) for this purpose. The VOG is obtained through the standard form provided by the ACN to apply for this pass. With this VOG screening profile for the ACN pass, the participant can be admitted to the security courses.
The NCTV has decided, that for all positions of trust in civil aviation, the VOG is no longer sufficient and a VGB must be applied for.
A VOG is sufficient to follow the course. For working in the warehouse with safe air cargo, a VGB is required!
Then supervisor training also appeared as a result of the introduced NOBB. This position should be filled at companies that employ inspectors in-house or hire through third parties. For example, EDD teams that check your shipments on-site. The good news is that this role can be either by an employee employed by the company where the security screenings are conducted or hired. However: the supervisor must be present at the site at the time of conducting the screening!
