Just got this from the BTCO:
New aviation security measures will be effective from March 1, 2007, for carry-on baggage on international flights, including charter flights, departing, transfer and transit in Taiwan area:
1.The United Kingdom authorities reported on August 10, 2006 they had succeeded in disrupting an alleged terrorist plot against civil aircraft. The terrorist attack involved the component parts of an Improvised Explosive Device, including a homemade liquid explosive. In response to the new threat, the ICAO Aviation Security Panel and ICAO Council recommended to each State for their implementing new aviation security control measures for screening liquids, gels, aerosols, etc not later than March 1, 2007.
2.In order to comply with international requirements, the following additional measures will be implemented by CAA and APO from March 1, 2007:
a)All liquids, gels or aerosols should be required to be carried in containers with a capacity not greater than 100 ml. Liquids, gels or aerosols carried in containers larger than 100 ml are not to be accepted, even if the container is only part-filled;
b)Containers should be placed in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag of a maximum capacity not exceeding 1 liter. The containers must fit comfortably within the transparent plastic bag, which should be completely closed;
c)The plastic bag should be presented for visual examination at the screening point. Only one transparent plastic bag per passenger could be permitted; and
d)Medications, baby milk/foods, and special dietary requirements are permitted in carry-on baggage if needed on board. These must be removed from the carry-on baggage and declared to security personnel at the checkpoint
e)The traveler may take Duty Free items on board which he/she has purchased on the day(s) of the journey in a Duty Free shop within security restricted area at airport or on board an aircraft. But these items must be packed in a sealed plastic bag that is both tamper-evident and displays satisfactory proof.
f)To facilitate screening and avoid a cluttered x-ray image, such plastic bags containing liquid, gels or aerosols containers should be presented apart from other cabin baggage, coats and jackets or laptops for separate x-ray screening.
3.If there are any further questions, please contact airline agents.
4.All passengers are advised to arrive at an airport 3 hours before departure for their convenience.
