The European Union has adopted new security rules that restrict the quantity of liquids, gels and pastes air passengers may carry through airport security search points in cabin bags.

The new rules apply to all air travellers travelling from any EU airport, as well those travelling from Switzerland, Norway and Iceland, regardless of their destination. The changes will be effective from November 6, 2006.

Liquids must be held in individual containers not exceeding 100ml (approximately 4 fl. oz).

Limited quantities of liquids, gels and pastes may include:

Shampoo
Creams
Suntan lotions
Toothpaste
Hair gel, hair spray
Perfumes
Liquid or aerosol deodorants
Cosmetics such as mascara and lip gloss
Water and other drinks, soups and syrups
Other items of a similar consistency

All liquid containers must be carried in a separate clear plastic, zip-top or re-sealable bag that does not exceed 20 cm x 20 cm (8 inches x 8 inches) or one litre capacity.

Items must fit in the bag comfortably and the bag must be completely closed.

At the airport security search, the plastic bag must be removed from the cabin bag and x-ray screened separately.

The new policy will also mean the customers travelling on flights from the UK will now be able to take the same quantity of liquids through airport security search points in their cabin bags from this date.
