EMO Canada Implements IFACP Requirements

EMO Trans always makes staying on top of the latest regulations and developments a priority. As such, EMO Canada has announced that the IATA-FIATA Air Cargo Program (IFACP) was declared as fully implemented in Canada on October 31, 2017, after which the current IATA Cargo Agency Program will be suspended. Any Agent that does not sign up and transfer to the IFACP will be terminated as an accredited IATA Cargo Agent, and the IATA Cargo Agency Agreement will be suspended and the forwarder will need to reapply to participate in the CASS as a CASS Associate.

According to Tracy Thoburn, Managing Director of EMO Canada, after successful roll outs of IFACP, the program will expand to other areas of the world with the agreement essentially replacing the existing IATA Cargo Agency agreements over time.
