Crew screening at airports

Hi folks,
I try to find the regulation for liquid allowance for crews to carry on bord. Can anybody show me the reference please?

This is just that when we do go through the safety scan in Germany, Spain or France we are fine and in the UK they
let us throw half of our stuff in the bin.

Thanks for your help

An axe behind your seat and two fire switches next to you - but you can't take that contact-lens solution..

UK has always been and will always be special, do not consider that place as any reference for aviation standards.
At some places in USA you don't even have to go thru security when operating (and I'm not talking about general aviation here), in EU most places are normal (no liquid restrictions, no shoes and belt off, no company ipads out of the bag), likewise in Africa and Asia.
Commission Regulation (EU) No 358/2010 addersses restrictions for passengers, not operating crews.

I used to regularly go through LHR control posts as airside staff, and nearly always mixed with flight crews. Some security staff seemed to take delight in making it difficult for crew. I never seemed to get singled out for the same sort of scrutiny.
With a tools of the trade pass I could take plenty of dangerous stuff airside but not a bottle of water!

So it still goes on ?
In the past, on a stormy day reporting from the hotel at GLA, a stroppy Scots jobsworth informed me that my ID wasn't visible. I apologised, showed it and put it back inside my soaking wet uniform mac to walk out to my aeroplane. He shouted that it should remain outside. I put it on view again until I reached the door to go airside and then did up my collar again to face another soaking. He ran after me and proceeded to dress me down in front of other staff and passengers next to the crew channel.
I then "had words" and walked out to my aeroplane. He was last seen, with his apparent "manager", standing drenched at the bottom of the steps where I had the senior steward refuse them boarding. I had an aeroplane to get out on time and it wasn't going to be the easiest of trips.
On another occasion at Teesside, my crew and I were invasively searched (You know, for the blokes, fingers too far down the top of you trouser belt) to the degree that one of my cabin staff was in tears at the way she was treated. All this while some Irish guys with wheelbarrows working airside were passing unhindered along a parallel channel.
What's wrong with these people ?

Sleeve wing

You need to remember that the use of what little power these people have is the highlight of their day, they are stick in a dead end low pay job with no chance of escape.

It is therefore wise to let these people have their pathetic power trip and just move on unless the infraction is so serious that it warrants police action.
