In keeping in line with legislation and new technology, security (body) scanners were deployed across all security lanes in Glasgow from the 20th of December 2016.
Security scanners used at Glasgow are safe. The UK Government has concluded that the use of this equipment does not pose any risk to health. The scanning equipment does not produce X-RAYS, nor does it emit ionising radiation.
